(Monte-Carlo radiative transfer code)

Hyperion is Radiative Transfer Code, software to simulate Radiative Transfer in astrophysical simulations. It uses Monte-Carlo techniques, i.e., performing individual simulations on individual random examples to provide data by which the whole system can be characterized.

Hyperion is also coincidentally the name of a Moon of Saturn.
