**Mathematical Problems Of Radiative Equilibrium**

by Eberhard Hopf

**Publisher**: Cambridge University Press 1934**Number of pages**: 123

**Description**:

Schwarzschild's classical work on absorption and diffusion in the sun's atmosphere, and the continuation of these investigations through A. Eddington, J.H. Jeans, R.A. Milne and others, have rendered the theory of radiative equilibrium a definite chapter of mathematical astrophysics. Besides the known results (theory of Milne's standard model, infinitely deep slab with no radiation incident on its surface) the reader will also find more or less detailed discussions of other models.
