Exact Solution of a Fully General Non-Local-Thermodynamic-Equilibrium Two-Level Atom
MathematicS In Action, Volume 11 (2022) no. 1, pp. 259-267.

We describe an algorithm for the solution of a statistical/average atom non-local-thermodynamic-equilibrium atomic kinetics model of steady-state plasmas in which all one- and two-electron processes are included in full generality.
