This book contains the lectures delivered at the XII Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics on Astrophysical Spectropolarimetry. It highlights how recent developments in theoretical astrophysics and astronomical instrumentation are leading an ever-growing number of astrophysicists to appreciate the enormous diagnostic potential offered by spectropolarimetry.The polarization phenomena which are met in the reflection and refraction of a beam of radiation at the separation surface ... 7-14) deals with the description, within the formalism of classical physics, of the spectro-polarimetric properties of the radiation emitted by accelerated charges. ... 15), the concepts of density- matrix and of atomic polarization are illustrated in Sect. 16. ... 19) is devoted to introduce the problem of finding a selfconsistent solution of the radiative transfer equations foranbsp;...
