Abstract

The theory of stellar atmospheres is reviewed. The most important characteristic quantities appearing in the computation of a model atmosphere are discussed. The basic equations used for these calculations are briefly derived. The treatment is then applied to derive the UV spectrum of early type stars. The results of specific calculations are compared with observational data.
