In this review we will discuss the hottest subluminous H-deficient stars, namely those with Teff > 30000 K. In the absence of reliable distance determinations for hot subluminous stars, the best way to discuss their properties and evolutionary status is to find their positions on the log g - log Teff diagram. In the last few years, after extensive computational work, first in Kiel and more recently also in Munich, it has become possible to obtain log g and Teff, together with the surface He abundance, directly by fitting the observed H and He absorption line profiles with theoretical profiles obtained from non-LTE model atmospheres and associated line formation codes. The non-LTE models are plane-parallel, in hydrostatic and radiative equilibrium, and the atmosphere is assumed to consist of H and He only. A recent paper by Groth et al. (1985) gives most of the references on the application of this non-LTE model atmosphere approach to the study of all kinds of hot subluminous stars.
