A two-week short course in modern X-ray spectrometry will be offered at the State University of New York at Albany, June 3–14, 1974. The course will be instructional and will develop the basic theory and techniques starting from elementary principles. No previous knowledge or experience is required. The first week will cover basic principles and techniques and the second week will continue with further fundamentals and practical applications. Emphasis in the second week will be placed on advanced principles and techniques, absorption-enhancement corrections by mathematical methods, computer automation of modern X-ray spectrometers, and energy-dispersive methods. Equal time will be devoted to lectures and laboratory problem solving sessions. Registration may be made for one week, either week, or for the entire two-week session.
