[8.10] Radiative Transfer in circumstellar envelopes of Variable Mass Loss Rate

N. Netzer (ORT-Braude College)

The equation of radiative transfer is solved for spherically symmetric outflows, coupled with the equation of motion. The technique is a Legendre expansion of the spectral intensity function. The calculations, that before have been carried out for steady state only, are extended to variable mass loss rates. The results, are studied for a variety of mass loss rates variation patterns and various types of stars.
