Abstract : A summary is given of the present state of the investigations carried out at the Yale Observatory on interactions between radiation and matter in a plasma. In particular, results based on a new transfer equation of radiation in dispersive media, and a discussion of some practically interesting cases of departures from local thermodynamic equilibrium in continuous energy states are given.
