Abstract

We consider the corrections due to quantum collective effects to transport of radiation in plasmas. Both stimulated and spontaneous quantum corrections are shown to be of the same order of magnitude or larger than the relativistic corrections related to the “comptonization” processes. The correction to the solar opacity is calculated.
