Historical remarks -- Spectroscopy in present-day astronomy -- Basic physics of spectral measurements -- Optical-range grafting and prism spectrometers -- Other techniques for the optical spectral range -- Preparing and reducing optical observation -- UV, X-ray, and gamma spectroscopy -- Spectroscopy at radio wavelengths -- Special techniques of the FIR and submillimeter range -- New developments and future prospects.
"The book introduces graduate students and young researchers of astronomy and physics to the techniques and methods of astronomical spectroscopy. It covers spectroscopic methods in all branches of astronomy, including optical astronomy, radio astronomy, and astronomy at X-ray and gamma-ray wavelengths. The book will also be of interest for engineers and technicians who are designing or operating optical and space instrumentation"--
