The present chapter deals with questions concerning the modeling of the physical processes in the electrodeless discharge of a lamp and the formation of radiation. Methods and results of experimental studies of the distribution of atoms in the discharge plasma are discussed in Chapter 4. When modeling processes in a spectral lamp, cases with and without taking into account the excitation of atoms of the buffer gas are analyzed separately. Though in the first case the results of the excitation of atoms of the buffer gas modeling are influenced by the significant simplification that the excitation of atoms of the buffer gas is neglected, this approximation permits one to carry out a comprehensive, computerized, and operative analysis.
