Abstract: Semiempirical models have been used for decades to study the chromospheres of the Sun and of stars of different spectral types. These models are built to match the observations in different spectral features, and make no assumption about the physical processes responsible for the heating of the chromosphere, but can be used to constrain these processes. In this paper we review some of the work done in the modeling of solar and stellar atmospheres, in particular to study active phenomena: solar and stellar flares and chromospheres of stars of different activity levels. We also review an application to RGB stars, where this technique allowed the detection of a stellar wind.
