Chemical abundances from inversions of stellar spectra: Analysis of solar-type stars with homogeneous and static model atmospheres

Allende Prieto, Carlos; Barklem, Paul S; Asplund, Martin; Ruiz Cobo, Basilio


Spectra of late-type stars are usually analyzed with static model atmospheres in local thermodynamic equilibrium (LTE) and a homogeneous plane-parallel or spherically symmetric geometry. The energy balance requires particular attention, as two elements that are particularly difficult to model play an important role : line blanketing and convection. Inversion techniques are able to bypass the difficulties of a detailed description of the energy balance. Assuming that the atmosphere is in...[Show more]
