Abstract: A systematic comparison with experiment of various explanations for the problem of satellite-band formation on spectral-line profiles was initiated. The experiments were performed under a variety of conditions in an effort to construct a consistent model of entire line shapes. A composite theory is detailed which is the result of the insights of many individuals. The calculations indicate that the main features of the problem, the line, the high-intensity red satellites, and the blue satellite can be described simultaneously. The results also indicate that widely different potentials can lead to very similar line profiles. Ancillary conclusions are presented concerning the role of Lennard-Jones potentials in line-shape calculations.
