[ascl:2212.020] Omega: Photon equations of motion

Omega solves the photon equations of motion in the environment surrounding a black hole. This black hole can be either Schwarzschild (nonrotating) or Kerr (rotating) by choice of the user. The software offers numerous options, such as the geometrical setup of the accretion disk around the black hole (including no disk, band, slab, wedge, among others, the spin parameter of the central black hole, and the thickness of the accretion disk. Other options that can be set includ the azimuthal angle of the photon emission/reception, the poloidal angle of the photon emission/reception, and how far away or close to the system to look.
