Keywords: Trapping radiation, Radiative transfer, Fredholm integral Equations, Lifetime measurements, Lineshape measurements, Eigenvalues, Steady-state Distribution of excited Atoms, Emergent spectra. | ||

Classification: 21.2. | ||

Nature of problem:Computation of the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the Holstein integral equation (describing radiation trapping in an atomic vapor) and the steady-state distribution of excited atoms in one-dimensional geometries. | ||

Solution method:Reduction of the Fredholm integral equation of the second kind to an algebraic system of equations which is solved by standard methods. | ||

Reasons for new version:We have developed a new algorithm for the computation of the matrix elements for all the computations in the cylinder case; this new algorithm offers very high accuracy at still reasonable run time. Furthermore, the computation of the steady-state distribution of excited atoms and the computation of the emergent spectra are additional convenient features. The new version requires fewer NAGLIB routines and thus can be run also on a PC. | ||

Restrictions:Restrictions of the achievable accuracy by memory and run-time limitations. | ||

Unusual features:Uses subroutines from a standard library of mathematical subprograms, NAGLIB. The program is divided into 6 modules that must be compiled and linked separately. | ||

Running time:Strongly dependent on the chosen geometry, the lineshape, the opacity and especially the required accuracy; will be between 1 and 1000 CPU seconds in most practical cases on a VAX 3100, or an IBM-PC (486/66MHz). |
