About this product
- DescriptionAstrophysicists have developed several very different methodologies for solving the radiative transfer equation. An Introduction to Radiative Transfer presents these techniques as applied to stellar atmospheres, planetary nebulae, supervae, and other objects with similar geometrical and physical conditions. Accurate methods, fast methods, probabilistic methods and approximate methods are all explained, including the latest and most advanced techniques. The book includes the different techniques used for computing line profiles, polarization due to resonance line scattering, polarization in magnetic media and similar phemena. Exercises at the end of each chapter enable these methods to be put into practice, and enhance understanding of the subject. This 2001 book will be valuable to graduates, postgraduates and researchers in astrophysics.
- Author BiographyAnnamaneni Peraiah obtained his doctorate in radiative transfer from Oxford University. He was formerly a Senior Professor at the Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Bangalore, India. He has held positions in India, Canada, Germany and The Netherlands. His research interests include developing solutions to the radiative transfer equation in stellar atmospheres, and line formation in expanding atmospheres with different physical and geometrical conditions.
