Abstract:

Methods of quantum field theory will be applied to prediction of atomic collision and reaction phenomena in gases and partially ionized plasmas, and of the effects of such processes on electromagnetic absorption and emission spectra. Better understanding of such phenomena is important for a use of spectra as a diagnostic tool for assessing the state of a gas or plasma under nonequilibrium conditions b prediction of the effect of a gaseous or plasma environment on propagation of electromagnetic radiation.
