Microdosimetry and Its Applications is an advanced textbook presenting the fundamental concepts and numerical aspects of the absorption of energy by matter exposed to ionizing radiation. It is the only comprehensive work on the subject that can be considered definitive. It provides a deeper understanding of the initial phase of the interaction of ionizing radiation with matter, especially biological matter, and its consequences.

Review:

"This is a careful and authoritative book on microdosimetry. No name is more closely associated with the subject than Rossi...The authors are to be congratulated on having produced a magnificent and much-needed work. This reviewer takes the liberty of saying 'thank you'" - Radiation Research
