We conducted a comparative study among the Bi-CG family with incomplete LU factorization employed for solving diffusion-type radiative transfer equation in radiation hydrodynamics (RHD) simulations for laser-produced plasmas. The result suggests that Bi-CGSTAB is the most suitable method thanks to its high convergence stability and low computational cost. RHD simulations were performed for Rayleigh-Taylor instability experiments of an inertial confinement fusion target. We found that higher harmonics of static pressure perturbation become important at an intermediate wavelength.
