WP4: Radiative transfer

Main contributors:
Ambra Nanni

The goal of WP4 is to provide spectra of dusty TP-AGB stars as a function of the stellar parameters (current mass, luminosity, effective temperature and mass-loss rate) usable for WP1 and WP5. The photospheric, dust-free spectra are provided by WP3 and are used as input for the dust growth calculations and radiative transfer modelling. The code following the dust growth, coupled with stationary wind dynamics, is described in Nanni et al., 2013, 2014, while the radiative transfer calculation is performed with the MoD code (Groenewegen et al., 2009), based on the DUSTY code (Ivezic & Elitzur, 1997).
