Radiative transfer codes
- Our notes
briefly list the optical characteristics
that are necessary for radiative transfer (RT)
calculations. For further reading we
give a list of works developing the RT codes for
astronomical applications. Here
is the PostScript original of the notes being a part of unpublished
review of N.Voshchinnikov prepared in 2002 for
Astrophys. & Space Phys. Rev.
(the whole review entitled "Optics of Cosmic Dust" is
available on request, please contact the author using the address
A part of these notes (the section on the radiative transfer approaches)
was addded by V.Il'in & S.Grachev.
- The page
of Jurgen Steinacker provides access to several radiative
transfer codes, some useful tools, and benchmark results.
