Heating and Ionization of the Interstellar Medium [chapter]

Michael Grewing
1974 Galactic Radio Astronomy  
Ionization and heating mechanisms are reviewed; some of them apply to the interstellar medium as a whole, others only to localized regions. Cooling processes are briefly summarized. Results are given from a recent model calculation for an intercloud medium heated by X-rays.
