The TORUS 3D Radiative Transfer Code

TORUS is a Monte-Carlo radiative-transfer code that is designed to compute polarization images and spectra from a three-dimensional opacity grid. The code's main features are
  • Written in f90 using modular techniques
  • Based on a three-dimensional opacity grid (AMR. spherical polar or cartesian)
  • Mie, Rayleigh, Thomson, and Raman scattering included
  • Line-transfer in the Sobolev approximation, with non-monotonic velocity fields
  • Polarization state of photons followed
  • Computes images and spectra simultaneously
TORUS is being applied to a variety of astrophysical objects: I am always interested in collaborating with colleagues who wish to apply TORUS to their objects. Please feel free to e-mail.
