Radiative Transfer Simulations of AGN Dust Tori
Max-Planck-Insitut für Radioastronomie, Auf dem Hügel 69, 53121 Bonn, Germany
The presence of dust tori in active galactic nuclei (AGN) lies at the heart of AGN unification schemes. The dominating inner part of the tori can only be resolved by infrared interferometry. Here we discuss the present state of torus models and the radiative transfer methods to simulate the infrared SEDs and visibilities for comparison with actual observations. We highlight the differences between smooth and clumpy tori and present a model for the Seyfert 2 nucleus NGC 1068.
