Pair production in thermal plasmas: a computer model.

In M. L. Burns, A. K. Harding, R. Ramaty, editors, Positron-Electron Pairs in Astrophysics , AIP Conference Proceedings, 101, 1983.


A computer code has been developed to follow the processes of electron-positron pair production, annihilation, bremsstrahlung and Comptonization in a slab of mildly relativistic thermal plasma. The resulting equilibrium solutions are compared with the semi-analytic calculations of Svensson.
