Abstract : The work reported here is the first phase of the study of improved techniques for determining the timedependent history of a radiation field. A standard problem of the penetration of a Planck spectrum of photons through a hot electron gas is solved by the Monte Carlo technique. A code to calculate the energy and angular spectrum of transmitted radiation was written in which no attempt was made to include stimulated scattering or any other nonlinear effects. Such nonlinear effects will be included in the second phase of this study and the calculations here will be repeated. Results for several spectra at different temperatures and a medium of an electron gas of temperature between 020 Kev are given. (Author)
