Velocity-Dependent Source Functions

  • David E. Rees (a1)


We consider the effect of a velocity gradient on the source function for a spectral line formed in an atmosphere in non local thermodynamic equilibrium, a problem examined previously by Kulander and Hummer and Rybicki. A numerical method is used which extends the Feautrier technique.
