Abstract Formulas are derived for the dependence of fluorescence upon time for the case when energy transfer from the solvent to the solute is involved. Three cases are considered: excitation by single fast particles, excitution by one burst of particles during a given period, and periodic excitation. One important point is that in the rise and decay of fluorescence from a burst of particles, it is the difference of two exponential functions and not their sum which occurs. The results are compared with the experiments of Burton and Dreeshamp, of Swank and Buck, and of Knau. These experiments are in general accordance with the derived formulas. (auth)
