Exact analytic solutions are derived for radiation in time-dependent relativistic flows. The flows are spherically-symmetric homologous explosions or implosions of matter with a grey extinction coefficient. The solutions are suitable for testing numerical transfer codes, and this is illustrated for a fully relativistic Monte Carlo code.
