Abstract

Covering a broad range of fundamental topics in classical optics and electro-magnetism, this updated, second edition contains 13 new chapters, which cover many topics of fundamental significance as well as practical importance. The first half of the book deals primarily with the basic concepts of optics, while the second half describes how these concepts can be used in a variety of technological applications. Each chapter is concerned with a single topic, developing an understanding of the subject through the use of diagrams, examples, numerical simulations, and logical arguments. The mathematical content is kept to a minimum to provide the reader with insightful discussions of optical phenomena.
