Radiative transfer phenomena arise in many applications ranging from astrophysics to photon beam radiotherapy. This volume describes some aspects of modern radiative transfer theory, dealing with models where the transport equation for the radiative energy is coupled to hydrodynamic systems. The discussion is specifically oriented to the design of dedicated efficient numerical methods. In particular, details are given on asymptotic regimes and asymptotic models that lead to diffusion approximations, intermediate models such as the M\(_1\) model based on an entropy minimization closure, and the analysis of shock profiles in radiative hydrodynamics.
