X-ray obscuration and reflection by a toroidal reprocessor, valid in the Compton-thick regime.

MYTorus is a model for X-ray reprocessing in a toroidal geometry (due to T. Yaqoob and K. D. Murphy), that is valid in the Compton-thick regime, for energies up to 500 keV. The model self-consistently includes fluorescent line emission due to Fe Ka and Fe Kb. The necessary files, a comprehensive user manual, and other resources are available from http://www.mytorus.com.
