  • Course notes of the 1999 Michelson Summer School. In particular, see Chapters 2 and 3 for a derivation of the interferometer's basic response and some examples of visibility functions.
  • You may also consult the viewgraphs for any Michelson Summer Workshop.
  • Interferometry and Synthesis in Radio Astronomy. A. R. Thompson, J. M. Moran and G. W. Swenson. Wiley-Interscience. This book contains, among many other things, all the equations needed to compute (u,v) spatial frequencies.
  • Statistical Optics. J. W. Goodman. John Wiley & Sons.
