Detailed Description

A geometrically thin, optically thick disk.

This class describes a disk contained in the z=0 (equatorial) plane, extending from r=r_ISCO to r=infinity. The flux emitted at radius r is given by Page & Thorne (1974, ApJ 191:499, Eqs. 11b, 14, 15).

Only bolometric flux is implemented (as quantity User4), no spectral resolution.
