(Monte Carlo radiative transfer code)

Hyperion is radiative transfer code, software to simulate radiative transfer in astrophysical simulations. It uses Monte Carlo methods, 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.
