Description

Abstract The program solves the radiation transport problem in a dusty medium with one-dimensional planar, spherical or cylindrical geometry. It determines self-consistently the effects of multiple scattering, absorption, and re-emission of photons on the temperature of dust grains and the characteristics of the internal radiation field. The program can treat radiation field anisotropy, linear anisotropic scattering, and multi-grain components. The program output consists of the dust temperature distr... Title of program: CSDUST3 Catalogue Id: AAEJ_v2_0 [ABBQ] Nature of problem Infrared observations indicate the presence of dust grains in circumstellar envelopes, interstellar clouds, and galactic nuclei. Dust grains play an important role in the thermodynamics of these objects. Theoretical modeling of the transport of radiation through dust can aid in our understanding of the nature of these objects. To construct realistic models, the effects of multiple scattering, absorption, and re-emission of photons on the temperature of dust grains must be determined self-consist ...
