Resolving the electron temperature discrepancies in H II regions and planetary nebulae: kappa-distributed electrons

David Nicholls (Australian National University, Australia) The measurement of electron temperatures and metallicities in H II regions and Planetary Nebulae has, for several decades, presented a problem: results obtained using different techniques disagree. There have been numerous attempts to explain … Continue reading
