Review of the 3rd Non-LTE Code Comparison Workshop



Y Ralchenko, R W. Lee, C Bowen


A review of the 3rd workshop on comparison of computer codes for modeling population kinetics in non-LTE plasmas is presented. We discuss the motivation for and advantages of such meetings, selection of test cases, and technical organization of the workshop. Some illustrative examples demonstrate the versatility and effectiveness of the developed approach to code comparison. The plans for future workshops are presented as well.
