Abstract: Spectral diagnostic features formed in the solar chromosphere are few and difficult to interpret — they are neither formed in the optically thin regime nor in local thermodynamic equilibrium (LTE). To probe the state of the chromosphere, both from observations and theory, it is therefore necessary with modeling. I discuss both traditional semi-empirical modeling, numerical experiments illustrating important ingredients necessary for a self-consistent theoretical modeling of the solar chromosphere and the first results of such models.
