Radiative transfer in disc galaxies - III. The observed kinematics of dusty disc galaxies

Baes, M.; Davies , J. I.; Dejonghe, H.; Sabatini, S.; Roberts, Sarah; Evans, Rhodri; Linder, S.; Smith, R. M.; de Blok, Willem


We present SKIRT (Stellar Kinematics Including Radiative Transfer), a new Monte Carlo radiative transfer code that allows the calculation of the observed stellar kinematics of a dusty galaxy. The code incorporates the effects of both absorption and scattering by interstellar dust grains, and calculates the Doppler shift of the emerging radiation exactly by taking into account the velocities of the emitting stars and the individual scattering dust grains. The code supports arbitrary...[Show more]
