Hello Grant. I submitted an early form of my work about 10 years ago (I was trying to separate stellar absorption from decreation ring emission in spectra from the fast rotator Albireo B). It was thoroughly reviewed and was rightly rejected as I had not fully understood all the physics. However since then I believe I have addressed the reviewers concerns and may have new results in the area of opacity (photon capture cross-sections) which I believe is still a problematic area (Atomic Astrophysics and Spectroscopy, Anil Pradhan and Sultana N. Nahar). I am also getting good results when applying my methods to a number of stars.
I did try to re-submit a paper on this work about six months ago but it was not forwarded onto review hence these posts. I am hoping that someone with relevant knowledge will review the work and discuss it with me.
