The transition p.d.f. for a one-dimensional Rayleigh process in the presence of an absorption condition or a zero-flux condition in the origin is obtained in closed form. The first-passage-time problem through an arbitrary constant boundary is then considered and the moment-generating function is determined. In some particular cases the first-passage-time p.d.f. is explicitly derived. Use of some of these results is finally made to obtain the transition p.d.f. of the affine drift-linear infinitesimal-variance diffusion process when the origin is an entrance or a regular boundary in the presence of a reflection condition.
