Three-dimensional non-local thermodynamic equilibrium radiative transfer and oxygen abundances in late-type stars

Amarsi, Anish Mayur


The chemical compositions of the atmospheres of late-type stars, as inferred from stellar spectroscopic analyses, provide vital clues to unravelling the history of stars, galaxies, and the cosmos as a whole. However, the vast majority of stellar spectroscopic analyses make at least two assumptions that severely limit their accuracy: that stellar atmospheres are one-dimensional (1D) and hydrostatic; and that the material in the line-forming regions is in local...[Show more]
