The analysis of radiation protection dosimetry needs specific tools for the preparation of dose coefficients for regulatory limits for releases from nuclear facilities, the determination of dose limits to members of the public, and the determination of emergency response actions when there is a nuclear-facility incident. Within this context, the authors succeed in presenting a comprehensive summary of current, state-of-the-art computational dosimetry techniques.

The content of this book makes it suitable for a large audience, ranging from graduate students in health physics to researchers who want to learn more about the radiation protection concepts and regulatory applications.
