what is 'attenuation' as it relates to lighting? the red book tells you how to use it but doesn't describe what it actually does.

yes it does pg 183 book ver 1.1 . basically for positional lights it describs how much light the vertex will get depending on its distance from the light source eg u can make lights only give off light in a small area
