Thanks to Horst Dieter Preschel for bringing to my attention the work of Harold Aspden, which was important in establishing the forces necessary to complete the organization of the Sun.
Thanks to Brant Callahan for sharing his extensive knowledge of spectral analysis, including blackbody theory.
Thanks to Michael Mozina for many productive discussions on nuclear fusion in arc discharges, and the intricacies of solar analysis using emissions from specific degrees of ionization.
Thanks most of all to Lloyd Kinder, whose patient and insightful questioning prodded this research along, and who specifically encouraged me to take a closer look at bulk solar abundances, which now forms the core of the stellar model.
