A quantum-statistical, multiple-particle-theoretical access to the optical properties of dense plasma has been developed during this work. The starting-point was the connection between the complex index of refraction and the transversal share of the bielectrical function. The long-wave border case in which the transversal and the longitudinal shares are identical was analysed for optical properties. It was thus possible to make use of the relationship between longitudional bielectrical function and polarisation function. A diagram technology (analogous to the Feynman diagram technology in quantum electrodyamics) has been introduced to determine the optical properties of plasma which can be derived directly from the polarisation function.

In addition to the study of an access to the optical properties of dense plasma, the aim of this work was the numerical analysis of the obtained expressions. In contrast to earlier theoretical access, especially shifted and asymmetric line profiles were given to determine the dimensions of the line profile relevant to plasma diagnostics in relation to the same directive as in the experiment. With the assistance of this access, theoretical line profiles for hydrogen-similar beams especially in plasma diagnostics and in astrophysics were provided. .
