Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Attempts to correct the confusion often found in photometry books which arises from confusing units and definitions of basic photometric quantities. Terminology and units are presented in a more standard way. Topics include blackbodies, flux transfer calculations, optical properties of materials, radiation detection, optical systems, radiometers and photometers, and color science. A knowledge of general physics is required. Worked examples follow many chapters. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
