Calibration of Fundamental Stellar Quantities: Summary and Conclusions

Gösta Lyngå
1985 Symposium - International astronomical union  
At a time when so much of the prestigious astronomical research is devoted to new and highly speculative phenomena, it has been rewarding to see and hear the cautions and accurate approach to the measuring and interpreting of stellar quantities. It has been shown by many speakers, perhaps clearest of all by our participant of honor Professor Popper, how insufficient attention to calibration problems can lead to erroneous results.
