The general kinetic equation of the charge-charge structure factor of a fully ionized strongly hydrogen plasma is solved in three distinct collision approximations. These structure factors are necessary for the complete description of spectral line profiles in hot dense plasma environments. Equilibrium correlation functions necessary to these solutions are provided by solution of the hypernetter chain integral equation in which an effective pair potential has been used to take into account short-range quantum effects. The results are compared with molecular dynamics simulations of the plasma using the effective pair potential and with a hierarchial approach involving known sum rules. Author
