Abstract:

In studies of the mechanisms responsible for the formation of the ionized regions of the atmos phere, one of the problems encountered is the solution of the set of differential equations describing the time dependence of the number density of the chemical species present. For simple cases where only one or two species are involved, there is no particular problem. When all the important constituents are included, however, the solution of these equations becomes very complex. A computer technique is pre sented that will solve any size set of these differential equations involving any number of chemical reactions. Author
