Efficient radiative transfer modelling with SKIRT

Baes, Maarten, Dejonghe, H. and Davies, Jonathan Ivor 2005. Efficient radiative transfer modelling with SKIRT. American Institute of Physics Conference Proceedings 761 , pp. 27-38. 10.1063/1.1913913

We present SKIRT, a three-dimensional Monte Carlo radiative transfer code developed to study dusty galaxies. We discuss SKIRT's most important characteristics and present a number of applications. In particular, we focus on the kinematical aspect of SKIRT. We demonstrate that dust attenuation mimics the presence of dark matter around elliptical galaxies and that it severely affects the rotation curves of edge-on galaxies
