Radiative Transfer

New in version 2.0.

For relevant parameters, please also see Radiative Transfer (Ray Tracing) Parameters and Radiative Transfer (FLD) Parameters.

Adaptive Ray Tracing

Solving the radiative transfer equation can be computed with adaptive ray tracing that is fully coupled with the hydrodynamics and energy / rate solvers. The adaptive ray tracing uses the algorithm of Abel & Wandelt (2002) that is based on the HEALPix framework.

For the time being, a detailed description and test suite can be found in the paper Wise & Abel (2011, MNRAS 414, 3458).

Flux Limited Diffusion

More details can be found in the paper Reynolds et al. (2009, Journal of Computational Physics 228, 6833).
