Radiative Transfer in 7 Lectures
April - June 2011
W 11:00 - 12:30
I have benefited from more than two decades of discussions of spectroscopy with both David Branch and Peter Hauschildt.
Formally I have learned it
through reading and re-reading Mihalas (1978) as well as the lecture
notes of Pomraning. Many of the illustrations I will present were
liberated from the lecture notes of Rutten and from
Mihalas. I also have benefited from the notes,
books, and papers of Castor, Avrett, Hoeflich, Rybicki & Lightman
as well as my students and postdocs and many others. Stealing from
Mihalas and Binney "Any errors that remain after the conscientious
tutelage of my colleagues are solely my own"
