Abstract : Work on radiation problems is divided into three headings: radiative transfer theory, radiation properties, and radiating flows. Radiative transfer theory involves the solution of the radiative transfer equation. The computation of the local physical properties which appear in the radiative transfer equation, the absorption coefficient and the source function, appear in the section called Radiative Properties. The subjects of radiative properties and radiative transfer theory find application in radiating flow fields. The inelastic collision of electrons and molecules, in particular the excitation of rotational energy, is discussed.
