Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 412)


A classification of methanol masers according to the type of maser sources is suggested. The list of candidates to be methanol masering transitions is compiled on the basis of general regularities analysis combined with results of statistical equilibrium calculations.
