Opacity by Walter F. Huebner, W. David Barfield


Opacity by Walter F. Huebner, W. David Barfield

This book covers all aspects of opacity and equations of state for gases, plasmas, and dust. The discussion emphasizes the continuous transformation of the equilibrium compositions of these phases as a function of temperature and density.


The authors approach their subject in a comprehensive and thorough manner. ... It is a `must buy
for any library concerned with atomic and molecular physics and astronomy theory, and a highly

-recommended textbook for all students concerned with radiative processes.

(Simon Jeffery, The Observatory, Vol. 135 (1245), April, 2015)

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
