Non-LTE line-blanketed model atmospheres of hot stars. 1: Hybrid complete linearization/accelerated lambda iteration method
A new munerical method for computing non-Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium (non-LTE) model stellar atmospheres is presented. The method, called the hybird complete linearization/accelerated lambda
A Grid of Non-LTE Line-blanketed Model Atmospheres of O-Type Stars
We have constructed a comprehensive grid of 680 metal line-blanketed, non-LTE, plane-parallel, hydrostatic model atmospheres for the basic parameters appropriate to O-type stars. The OSTAR2002 grid
A Grid of NLTE Line-blanketed Model Atmospheres of Early B-Type Stars
We have constructed a comprehensive grid of 1540 metal line-blanketed, NLTE, plane-parallel, hydrostatic model atmospheres for the basic parameters appropriate to early B-type stars. The BSTAR2006
Possible Solutions to the Radius Anomalies of Transiting Giant Planets
We calculate the theoretical evolution of the radii of all 14 of the known transiting extrasolar giant planets (EGPs) for a variety of assumptions concerning atmospheric opacity, dense inner core
Using a model for refractory clouds, a novel algorithm for handling them, and the latest gas-phase molecular opacities, we have produced a new series of L and T dwarf spectral and atmosphere models
A computer program for calculating non-LTE model stellar atmospheres
Abstract The program calculates model stellar atmospheres, assuming plane-parallel, horizontally homogeneous atmosphere in radiative and hydrostatic equilibrium, and allowing for departures from
STIS Observations of He II Gunn-Peterson Absorption toward Q0302–003
The ultraviolet spectrum (1145¨1720 of the distant quasar Q0302(003 (z \ 3.286) was observed at Ae ) 1.8 resolution with the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph aboard the Hubble Space Telescope .A
Relativistic Accretion Disk Models of High-State Black Hole X-Ray Binary Spectra
We present calculations of non-LTE, relativistic accretion disk models applicable to the high/soft state of black hole X-ray binaries. We include the effects of thermal Comptonization and bound-free
Theoretical Spectra and Light Curves of Close-in Extrasolar Giant Planets and Comparison with Data
We present theoretical atmosphere, spectral, and light-curve models for extrasolar giant planets (EGPs) undergoing strong irradiation for which Spitzer planet/star contrast ratios or light curves
The VLT-FLAMES survey of massive stars: surface chemical compositions of B-type stars in the Magellanic Clouds
We present an analysis of high-resolution FLAMES spectra of approximately 50 early B-type stars in three young clusters at different metallicities, NGC 6611 in the Galaxy, N 11 in the Large
