I read the recent paper on Spectral and Decomposition Tracking by Kutz et al.

I want to use weighted tracking methods in my own toy path tracer.
Following the PBRT book pg 889, the incident radiance is composed of two terms: the radiance arriving from the distant hit point Tr*Lo and the inscattered radiance integrated along the viewing ray.
I evaluate only one of these terms probabilistically. The first, term if no collision was generated, otherwise there is a scattering or absorption even.
As per PBRT I need to weight Tr*Lo with the probability that no interaction takes place, i.e. the probability to hit the surface p_surf. Thus the estimator is Tr*Lo/p_surf.
However, I cannot figure out how to determine the weight Tr/p_surf.
So how is the inscattered radiance combined with the background?
I also took a brief look at Novak's Ratio Tracking paper but there I also failed to find an answer.
Practical and theoretical implementation discussion.
