Abstract:

Two theoretical approaches have been followed to calculate far wing absorption of collision reduced absorption in the infrared. The first approach was a standard time dependent perturbation theory. Two methods of this kind were pursued, using different limits. A second approach was investigated called the Recursive Residue Generation Method. The first approach was applied to water self-broadening. Results are given in 10 micro m region. The second approach was investigated for feasibility and examined in the context of the HCl-Ar wings.
