and the VLBA

NRAO Workshop No. 22,

held in Socorro, New Mexico 23-30 June 1993

J. A. Zensus, P. J. Diamond, and P. J. Napier (Eds.)

ASP Conference Series, Vol. 82, 1995

This book is intended to serve two primary purposes: to provide an
introduction and reference of the basic hardware and software concepts
relevant for very long baseline interferometry (VLBI), and to describe the
fundamental design properties, observing capabilities, and analysis
approaches of the VLBA. The book should be useful for both
experienced VLBI practitioners and novices to the field. We
recommend two outstanding complementary texts: *Interferometry and
Synthesis in Radio Astronmy* by A. R. Thompson, J. Moran, and G. W.
Swenson, Jr., and *Synthesis Imaging in Radio Astronomy*, edited by
R. A. Perley, F. R. Schwab, and A. H. Bridle (ASP Conference Series, Vol. 6).

The NRAO is not selling or distributing copies of the book.
