From the reviews: The authors of this book provide a detailed study of the thermal behaviour of antennae. They combine theory and modelling of telescopes with a substantial amount of real data from various observatories (most frequently from their home base, IRAM). The thermal environment, heat transfer, real measurements, and model calculations of the thermal behaviour of antennae are all treated in considerable detail. This volume appears to me to be a valuable assessment of the current state of this complex set of problems. (Guy Pooley, The Observatory, Vol. 131 (1224), October, 2011)
