The K-Trumpler effect in the context of a generalized information transfer concept
In this paper, the K-Trumpler effect is discussed from a new point of view which is based on information theory. The essential feature of this approach is a generalized concept of information transfer which allows to model information transfer during natural processes. This concept is applicable to processes far from thermodynamic equilibrium so that it can also be applied to the light propagation process from a star. An observational indication that not all aspects of the light propagation process from a star are really well understood is the so called K-Trumpler effect. The K-Trumpler effect was first noticed in 1911 and is since then a challenging puzzle. We will show that the application of the generalized information transfer concept allows to rationalize and to quantify the K-Trumpler effect.
