advanced radiative transfer in dusty systems

SKIRT properly performs the major benchmarks published in the field to which the code is applicable, i.e. continuum dust radiative transfer for astrophysical systems. In fact, the SKIRT team participated in several recent benchmark efforts. The geometries, source spectra and dust properties needed for these benchmarks are built into SKIRT, so you can run them without changing the code. The SKIRT configuration file (ski file) for each benchmark is offered for download on the corresponding page:
