Abstract

An efficient numerical technique for modeling biological tissues using the radiative transfer equation is presented. Time dependence of the transient radiative transfer equation is approximated using Laguerre expansion. Azimuthal angle is discretized using the discrete ordinates method and the resulting set of ordinary differential equations is solved using the Runge-Kutta-Felhberg method.
