To whom is able to answer this:
I think that when radiant energy get in contact with matter three basic phenomena take place:
1.- Transmission
2.- Reflection
3.-Absorption and emission
I think this three basic phenomena enclose all phenomena that can occur after the interaction
I wait for your answer
With all the best

Why did you lump absorption and emission? Either could occur independent of the other.
