Detailed Opacity Calculations for Stellar Models

  title={Detailed Opacity Calculations for Stellar Models},
  author={Jean-Christophe Pain and Franck Gilleron and Maxime Comet},
  journal={arXiv: Solar and Stellar Astrophysics},
Radiative opacity is an important quantity in the modeling of stellar structure and evolution. In the present work we recall the role of opacity in the interpretation of pulsations of different kinds of stars. The detailed opacity code SCO-RCG for local-thermodynamic-equilibrium (LTE) plasmas is described, as well as the OPAMCDF project dedicated to the spectroscopy of LTE and non-LTE plasmas. Interpretations, with the latter codes, of several laser and Z pinch experiments in conditions…

Progress in Global Helioseismology: A New Light on the Solar Modeling Problem and Its Implications for Solar-Like Stars

Since the first observations of solar oscillations, helioseismology has been one of the most successful fields of astrophysics. Data of high quality were obtained through the implementation of

The Theory of Atomic Structure and Spectra

Both the interpretation of atomic spectra and the application of atomic spectroscopy to current problems in astrophysics, laser physics, and thermonuclear plasmas require a thorough knowledge of the

The Internal Constitution of the Stars

ATTEMPTS to construct theories about the physical conditions inside a star need, of course, no excuse. Such theories are on the same footing as other physical theories, inasmuch as many intermediate

The Internal Constitution of the Stars

This address is devoted to what may be described as analytical boring devices, for, contrary to many anticipations, even the discovery of the fourth dimension has not enabled us to get at the inside of a body.
