Abstract:

A short review is given of the literature pertinent to the bolometric correction. A recommended scale of bolometric corrections is presented based upon recent model atmospheres for stars of early spectral type, and upon stellar energy distributions synthesized from photoelectric observations of stars later than FO V. The reduction of various photoelectrically determined magnitude and color systems to a common system and the further reduction of these measurements to absolute energy units is discussed in some detail.
