Radiative transfer in protoplanetary disks

We present a new 3D continuum radiative transfer code, MCFOST, based on a Monte-Carlo method. The reliability and efficiency of the code is tested by comparison with five different radiative transfer codes previously tested by Pascucci et al. (2004), using a 2D disk configuration. When tested against the same disk configuration, no significant difference is found between the temperature and SED calculated with MCFOST and with the other codes. The computed values are well within the range of values computed by the other codes. The code-to-code differences are small, they rarely exceed 10% and are usually much smaller.
