Kellerer, Albrecht M.; Chmelevsky, D. (1975): Concepts of microdosimetry. II. Probability distributions of the microdosimetric variables. In: Radiation and Environmental Biophysics, Vol. 12, Nr. 3: S. 205-216




This is the second part of an investigation of microdosimetric concepts relevant to numerical calculations. Two different types of distributions of the microdosimetric quantities are discussed. The sampling procedures are considered, which lead from the initial pattern of energy transfer, the so-called inchoate distribution, to the distribution of specific energy and thier mean values. The dependences of the distribution of specific energy on absorbed dose is related to the sampling procedures.
