Radio astronomers have developed techniques of calibration of large reflector antennas with radio astronomical methods, but these have not been comprehensively described. This text aims to fill this gap, taking a practical approach to the characterisation of antennas. All calculations and results in the form of tables and figures have been made with Mathematica by Wolfram Research. The reader can use the procedures for the implementation of his own input data.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The book is physically attractive. Many of the radio telescopes under discussion are pictured in full color ... . Mathematica routines used to compute the examples... .Overall, Baars's text is a valuable addition to the literature on large reflector antennas. As an encyclopedia of modern, very large paraboloidal antennas, it has no equal, and the existing state of the art is well documented therein. ... I believe it will become a standard reference." (George Swenson, Physics Today, July, 2008)
