**Spectral Line Shapes in Plasmas**

by

**Evgeny Stambulchik (ed.)**-

**MDPI AG**,

**2015**

Line-shape analysis is one of the most important tools for diagnostics of both laboratory and space plasmas. Its implementation requires accurate calculations, which imply the use of analytic methods and computer codes of varying complexity.
