Title of program: ILTHII Catalogue Id: AAEF_v1_0 Nature of problem It has been shown by Salem and Seaton that, given the spectrum of a thermal radioastronomical source, information on the structure can be deduced in the form of a function Omega(E), which is the total angular area within which the emission measure is greater than or equal to E. A spherical model of the object can also be constructed. An estimate of the electron temperature, Te, (assumed to be constant) is required. In some cases this estimate may be improved by comparing Omega(E) with observatio ...
