Statistical equilibrium equations for trace elements in stellar atmospheres

  • R. Monier, B. Smalley, G. Wahlgren, Ph. Stee and J. Kubát (a1)...


The conditions of thermodynamic equilibrium, local thermodynamic equilibrium, and statistical equilibrium are discussed in detail. The equations of statistical equilibrium and the supplementary equations are shown together with the expressions for radiative and collisional rates with the emphasize on the solution for trace elements.
