MONTE CARLO METHOD FOR EXCHANGE AMONG DIFFUSE-GRAY SURFACES
Leading to: Net radiation method in radiative transfer
Radiation problems are ideally suited for using the Monte Carlo method. Here, we examine radiant exchange between surfaces in the absence of a participating medium.
The general expression for the radiant emissive power of a surface element is
In this expression, ε(λ, T, θ, φ, r) is the monochromatic directional emissivity, Iλb is the blackbody spectral intensity, and θ and φ are the angular directions (Fig. 1).

Equation (1) places no restriction on the wavelength, direction, or temperature dependence of the emissive power. However, from this point, the discussion is limited to application of the method to diffuse-gray surfaces. Extension to directional-spectral surfaces can be explored in the references.
