This bibliography was collected from numerous
international sources and represents as complete a
compilation of publications from the 15 years covered as
could be collected. Nearly 1000 references are
included, separated into one of 20 topics such as
aerosols and smoke, industrial occupancies, ships, smart
detectors and systems, and system reliability studies.
Each such section begins with a brief summary and cites
the more important papers within. The bibliography ends
with a commentary on what the overall literature shows,
what research is needed to achieve more reliable
detection system operation and reduced unwanted alarms.
An author index and a key work index are provided.
