A major part of the report involves a compilation of information and critical evaluation of that information as it pertains to the diagnostic problem. The information is gathered together in a bibliography of books, reports, and published articles and is discussed. The investigation of the feasibility of applying the theory of band models to the diagnostic problem of determining temperatures and concentrations has led to the development of a mathematical inversion technique based on low-resolution emission-absorption spectroscopy. Band model theory and much of its literature is summarized in the report. The inversion of the Curtis-Godson approximation of a statistical band model with Lorentz lines of constant width is presented in detail. Experiments were performed to verify the technique but are inconclusive.
