Title of program: TRANSPHERE Catalogue Id: AAAB_v1_0 Nature of problem Given the opacity and source function on a discrete grid of radius and frequency points, this program evaluates the formal solution of the radiative transfer equation in a spherically symmetric atmosphere surrounding a central core, which may be hollow or may absorb and emit radiation in any manner specified by the user. In addition to the radiation intensity, the first three moments of the intensity (J, H and K) and the Eddington factors K/J and H/J are evaluated at radii and frequency of inter ...
