The X-ray Emissivity of the Universe: 2-200 KevObservational results on the diffuse X-ray background between 2 and 200 keV are reported. Data are presented as a function of the volume emissivity function B (E) (ergs/sec cu Mpc keV emitted at energy E). The prescription for this is first to establish the spectral intensity I (E) (ergs/sec sq cm ster keV) measured at the earth, second to subtract the contribution due to known, discrete sources, and third to unfold the integral equation which relates the measured intensity to the emissivity.
