My specific project is mainly independent and of my own creation, with guidance from Dr. Young for coding specific issues and Professor Esposito for specific topic difficulties. However, this work will consist of my own code as a recipe for manipulating specific types of scientific data format.

As for the overall objectives, we are working from and building upon numerous sources. In particular we will be working from Professor Esposito’s papers on the Markov chain and radiative transfer programs as well as several projects completed by Dr. Young and colleagues on modeling Titan’s atmosphere. Of course even these pieces were built from previous works relating to the Monte Carlo techniques and radiative transfer equations from within the last century.
