The work reported here is the first phase of the study of improved techniques for determining the time-dependent history of a radiation field. A standard problem of the penetration of a Planck spectrum of photons through a hot electron gas is solved by the Monte Carlo technique. A code to calculate the energy and angular spectrum of transmitted radiation was written in which no attempt was made to include stimulated scattering or any other non-linear effects. Such non-linear effects will be included in the second phase of this study and the calculations here will be repeated. Results for several spectra at different temperatures and a medium of an electron gas of temperature between 0-20 Kev are given. Author
