A multi-temperature blackbody model for a thin, steady-state, Newtonian accretion disk, assuming zero torque at the inner boundary for the disk at radius . The temperature of the disk as a function of radius is assumed to be , where and . The maximum temperature in the disk is given by .
This model is an alternative to diskbb, which assumes a non-zero torque at the inner edge and a temperature profile , and it should be used to fit spectra of disks when the zero-torque inner boundary condition is appropriate. For details see Zimmerman et al. (2005).
