Title: "Radiative Transfer Modeling of Exoplanets: methods, ingredients, and outcomes."

I discuss the methodology on how to tackle radiative transfer in exoplanetary atmospheres and give an overview of the crucial ingredients and common assumptions. Specifically, the focus lies on the chemistry and the opacities and how they influence the obtained temperatures and spectra of planets. A live demonstration of a radiative transfer calculation is shown using the GPU-accelerated code HELIOS.
