[44.01] Sphericaly extended, massively non-LTE models of standard red giant stars

We present spherically extended atmospheric models of red giant standard stars with all of the significant atomic opacity treated in direct multi-level non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (NLTE). We compare our synthetic flux distributions to the global energy distribution and to the detailed shape of lines of the CO fundamental band for several stars.
