Although this polarized radiation is usually only a small fraction of the aztronomical radiation, it often carries a wealth of information on the physical state and geometry of the emitting object and intervening material.

Starting from first principles and a simple physical picture of polarized radiation, the reader is introduced to all the key topics, including Tinergen parameters, applications of polarimetry in astronomy, polarization algebra, polarization errors and calibration methods, and a selection of instruments from radio to X-ray.
