The frequency fluctuation model that provides a model for the description of Stark broadening has been modified to include the effect of a uniform magnetic field. This model is a convenient framework for treating, in a non-perturbative approach, simultaneously acting Zeeman and Stark effects, while retaining the effect of ion dynamics. The first applications of this model concern the Lyman-[alpha] line of hydrogen in discharge plasma conditions, and the same transition for hydrogenic argon in high energy density plasmas. Line shapes of boron-like carbon observed in Tokamak edge plasma have also been calculated, and compared to experimental profiles.
