Thermal radiation is emitted from any body whose temperature exceeds absolute zero. It is the mechanism by which heat is exchanged among bodies at different temperatures in the absence of an intervening medium. In this chapter we present the basic concepts from electromagnetic theory and geometrical optics that are required for the formulation of mathematical models describing radiation heat transfer. Included is an introductory treatment of the radiation behavior of dielectrics and metals.
