Item description for Tools of Radio Astronomy (Astronomy and Astrophysics Library) by K. Rohlfs...

This textbook gives an outline of the tools and methods of radio astronomy needed by students and astronomers who want to understand how to carry out observations and how to relate the data to physical processes in interstellar space. It gives a unified treatment of the entire field of radio astronomy from centimeter to sub-millimeter wavelengths, using single telescopes as well as interferometers. The first half of the text covers instrumentation and observational techniques, the second covers most of the principal areas of astronomical research emphasizing fundamental results. The third edition differs from the second edition in several respects. The text has been brought up to date and additional sections on new receiver techniques, such as hot electron bolometers and chirp transform spectrometers, have been added. A new section on pulsar astronomy has also been included.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tools of Radio Astronomy (Astronomy and Astrophysics Library)?

One of the best introductions to the field  May 17, 2000
Although Rohlfs and Wilson have only made perfunctory changesbetween this and the previous edition of the book, it still stands asone of the best introductions to the field of radio astronomy. It still doesn't cover some topics (such as calibration techniques) as well as I would have liked, and Kraus' _Radio Astronomy_ (2e) does a better job (IMHO) on the mathematical details as well as specific applications. Because of its length, the topics of millimeter and submillimeter astronomy are not covered in as much as centimeter wavelengths. However despite all this, the book is highly readable for a student in the field, and is invaluable to have on one's bookshelf, or even to take observing (for those who only dabble in radio astronomy).
