An algorithm is offered for finding the range within which cumulative particle size distribution functions can be located in consistency with experimental turbidimetric data at a number of wavelengths. It is based on linear programming and minimization techniques. Several tests were performed. The lower right-hand branch of the corridor was found to locate near the initial distribution function.
