A numerical solution is obtained for the coupled Boltzmann equation and rate equations, including the effects of nonelastic collisions and radiation escape. Specific topics include The rate equations, the Boltzmann equation, and the equation of radiative transfer simplification of the Boltzmann equation and rate equations to forms which allow analytical solutions to be found a numerical solution for the coupled Boltzmann equation and rate equations solutions for a hydrogen plasma in both steady-state and transient situations the effects of photon escape and nonelastic collisions in a cesium argon plasma discussion of physical systems where the effects of nonelastic collisions are likely to be important.
