In many papers about neutrino telescopes I saw the term 'effective area' and 'detector acceptance'. But those were often not defined in the papers, which suggest such definitions should be found in textbooks. However, I couldn't find a textbook that explains the quantities.

What are the definitions of the effective area and detector acceptance?

Could you also recommend a textbook or a review paper that explains those?
