Line Emission from Gas in Optically Thick Dust Disks around

We present self-consistent models of gas in optically-thick dusty disks and calculate its thermal, density and chemical structure. The models focus on an accurate treatment of the upper layers where line emission originates, and at radii & 0.7 AU. Although our models are applicable to stars of any mass, we present here only results around ∼ 1M⊙ stars where… CONTINUE READING
