Some results of numerical investigations are presented for the problem of determination of discontinuities of an unknown function that has the meaning of the internal source distribution and is given in a domain with absorption and refraction, on using the attenuated ray transform of the function. The refraction and the absorption coefficient are assumed to be given. The behavior of the available and newly constructed discontinuity indicator operators is investigated in some numerical tests. Some modification of discontinuity indicators was carried out for the purpose of applying them in the model of refractive tomography with absorption. Numerical methods are applied to investigate the possibility of using the operators of this kind for solving the problem of finding the discontinuities of a function from its attenuated ray transform; the degree is investigated of the influence on the recovery quality of such factors as the level of the noise introduced into the generated data, the parameters of metrics, the magnitude and variation of the absorption coefficient.
