Abstract: A method for solving the radiative transfer equation appropriate for the case of a white dwarf with an accretion disc is described. The problem is solved in two dimensions in axial symmetry. The velocity field in the radiative transfer equation is not taken into account using the Sobolev approximation, but rather in detail using the Lorentz transformation. This allows us to include both small and high velocity gradients present in accretion discs.
