Two methods are presented for calculating the radiation field in a spherically symmetric plasma. The first method involves ray tracing and the use of Feautriers equations and allows evaluation of the zeroth and all higher moments of the radiation field. The second approach makes use of an approximate variable Eddington factor to integrate the combined moment equation of radiative transfer.
