The University of Sydney. Account Options Sign in. Polarization in astronomy 4. The book is rounded off with a number of useful case studies, a collection of exercises, an extensive list of further reading and an informative index.
Although this polarized radiation is usually only a small fraction of the total radiation, it often carries a wealth of information on the physical state and geometry of the emitting object and intervening material. Starting from first principles and a simple physical picture of polarized radiation, the reader is introduced to all the key topics, including Stokes parameters, applications of polarimetry in astronomy, polarization algebra, polarization errors and calibration methods, and a selection of instruments from radio to X-ray.
