a.
Nov 1998 fitting spectra to splines
an attempt to explain fitting the continuum part of spectra.

b. Nov 2000 Simulating Detectors an attempt to explain
fractional counts and the use of detector simulation in the design of
detectors.

3. There is a surprising amount of
radiation in the natural background as seen below.

A bit of detail about the natural background and an expansion of some of the regions of this plot is in Ztcase9.

4. A detailed fit to a set of
"essentially" background files is described in the paper Detecting Low Levels of Plutonium
with HPGe Spectra
