PHOENIX stellar model

(PHOENIX, PHOENIX code)
(computer model of a stellar photosphere)

The Phoenix stellar model (or PHOENIX or PHOENIX code) is a computer model of the photosphere of a star. Through simulation, it gives a model spectrum of a star given some basic stellar characteristics.

The code is sufficiently general to be used for planetary atmospheres, I assume specifically modeling their absorption.
