Super-massive stars: Radiative transfer
Mönchhofstraße 12-14, 69120 Heidelberg, Germany
The concept of central super-massive stars (, where is the mass of the super-massive star) embedded in dense stellar systems was suggested as a possible explanation for high- energy emissions phenomena occurring in active galactic nuclei and quasars (Vilkoviski 1976; Hara 1978), such as X-ray emissions (Bahcall & Ostriker 1975). SMSs and super-massive black holes are two possibilities to explain the nature of super-massive central objects, and super-massive stars may be an intermediate step towards the formation of super-massive black holes (Rees 1984). Therefore it is important to study such a dense gas-star system in detail. We address here the implementation of radiative transfer in a model which was presented in former work (Amaro-Seoane & Spurzem 2001; Amaro-Seoane et al. 2002). In this sense, we extend here and improve the work done by Langbein et al. (1990) by describing the radiative transfer in super-massive stars using previous work on this subject (Castor 1972).
