4 - Stellar Atmosphere Codes


A description is given of stellar atmosphere codes – both codes for calculating the structure of the stellar atmosphere (i.e., including an energy equation) and codes for calculating the emergent spectrum from a given atmospheric structure. Emphasis has been given to codes that are either publicly available or in wide use by a large community. References are given for detailed code descriptions and for typical applications of the codes.
