A Heuristic Introduction to Radioastronomical Polarization

  title={A Heuristic Introduction to Radioastronomical Polarization},
  author={Carl Heiles},
Radio sources are often polarized. Accurate measurement of simply the flux density of a radio source requires a basic understanding of polarization and its measurement techniques. We provide an introductory, heuristic discussion of these matters with an emphasis on practical application and avoiding pitfalls.
