Abstract

I will discuss the implementation of two open source Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) ray tracers for radiative transfer. The first, SPHRAY, is appropriate for point sources while the second, URCHIN, is appropriate when calculating shielding from a uniform background. I will also discuss how to combine the two in an efficient way.
