Part III: IR-Sources, Masers and Compact H II Regions
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 42)


A large number of maser sources of OH and H2O are now known to be associated with H II regions. In general, they are the most powerful maser sources discovered in our Galaxy. This report deals with three problems: (a) a pumping mechanism for OH and H2O masers; (2) formation of maser condensations; (3) mechanisms for the polarization of maser emission. We then summarize the complete picture for OH and H2O maser emission.
