An adaptive Gaussian quadrature for the Voigt function

Abstract : We evaluate an adaptive Gaussian quadrature integration scheme suitable for the numerical evaluation of generalized redistribution in frequency functions. The latter are indispensable ingredients for "full non-LTE" radiation transfer computations, assuming potential deviations of the velocity distribution of massive particles from the usual Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution. A first validation is made with computations of the usual Voigt profile.
