Write-up for a NIT Calicut school in March 2021.  It treats radiative transfer in the solar atmosphere in complexity order of non-local control in space, wavelength, time and uses classic literature for illustration. It contains many hyperlinks to my on-line materials and to literature and also many footnotes detailing specific cases. It may be read cursorily for a quick overview but it becomes a comprehensive course when you study all footnotes and links, the latter serving as convenient pointers and page openers in on-line reading.
