Abstract
We present a brief review on the atomic kinetics, modeling and interpretation of astrophysical observations, and laboratory astrophysics experiments. The emphasis is on benchmarking of opacity calculations relevant for solar structure models, photoionized plasmas research, the magnetohydrodynamic numerical simulation of accretion disk dynamics, and a connection between radiation transport effects and plasma source geometry details. Specific cases of application are discussed with relevance to recent and proposed laboratory astrophysics experiments as well as Chandra and X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission Newton observations.
