A study of equations of state/opacity of ionized gases
Abstract
A collisionalradiative nonLTE code, CREMIT, is described which can calculate the timedependent ionization recombination and radiative emission histories for moderate atomic number (Z less than or equal to 30) ions in a plasma. The physical models are described in detail and include collisional excitation and ionization, collisional and radiative deexcitation and recombination, and dielectronic recombination. The applicability of the model to magnetohydrodynamic calculations is discussed.
