Abstract : The report describes theoretical studies of the basic radiative properties of high temperature gases. The primary emphasis of this work was devoted to methods of calculating spectral absorption coefficients of electronic transitions in diatomic molecules. The smeared line model was used to calculate absorption coefficients in fifty such transitions. Ancillary work included studies of methods of calculating numerical potential functions of the RydbergKlein-Rees type, solutions to the Schroedinger equation with such potential functions, and computational procedures for evaluating Franck-Condon and r-centroid factors.
