A rigorous theoretical development is given for isobaric radial droplet evaporation (IRDE) induced by laser radiation. This rigorous development in the form of a computer code, IRDE is used to assess the accuracy of previous approximate theories for the description of this process as well as to derive a new and improved approximate theory.
