This course offers a comprehensive treatment of Radiative heat transfer. The course starts with standard optics on Radiative transfer and radiant exchange between surfaces and introduces modern state-of-the-art topics including Radiative properties of gases and particles, P-Napproximation, the Monte Carlo method and the prediction of radiation transfer in absorbing,emitting, and scattering media.
