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"
