Abstract
The quantum theory of combined Doppler and foreign gas pressure broadening at the binary collision level is developed from the point of view of statistical mechanics. A kinetic equation is first derived which is linearized in the radiation field. For line-broadening purposes, the equation is reduced to steady-state equation for collisions localized in position space. The equation takes into account the effects of photon recoil momentum, binary collision correlations, collisions of finite duration and line-coupling.
