Validation and Verification of Collisional-Radiative Models
Quality control is as relevant to scientific computing as to any other software. For complex collisional-radiative (CR) models that are used to calculate plasma population kinetic parameters and spectra, each computer code is expected to be thoroughly tested and verified not only against experimental data but also against fundamental principles governing plasma population kinetics. In this Chapter we describe the advanced methods for validation and verification of CR models that were developed for the Non-Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium (Non-LTE) Code Comparison Workshops. Also the Monte Carlo approach to analysis of uncertainty propagation in CR models is briefly discussed and exemplified.
