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 adds many yellow-page endnotes detailing specific cases.  On-screen reading with web acess is a must because it contains many page-opening hyperlinks to my on-line materials and to public literature.  It may be read cursorily for a quick overview but it becomes a comprehensive course when studying all notes and links, the latter serving as convenient pointers and page openers.  These are also useful for researchers selecting a topic suiting their interest.
