Modern Methods in Collisional-radiative Modeling of Plasmas (Hardcover)
about this item
This book presents a broad overview of the recent developments in collisional-radiative modeling of laboratory and astrophysical plasmas. Such modeling is at the core of accurate spectroscopic diagnostics of plasmas. A number of important topics, such as atomic models for CR modeling, atomic data and its availability and quality, radiation transport, non-Maxwellian effects on plasma emission, ionization potential lowering, and verification and validation of CR models, will be thoroughly addressed. Strong emphasis will be placed on the most recent developments in the field, such as XFEL spectroscopy.
Written by leading international research scientists from a number of key laboratories, the book offers a timely summary of the most recent progress in this field. It will be a useful and practical guide for students and researchers working with plasmas.
