Mathematical Theory of Optics Rudolf Karl Luneburg, Max Herzberger Limited preview - 1. Wave optics and geometrical optics Hamilton's theory of geometrical optics Application of the theory to special problems First order optics The third order aberrations in systems of rotational symmetry Diffraction theory of optical instruments--Appendix I. Vector analysis: definitions and theorems--Appendix II. COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus. The book assumes no knowledge of optics beyond undergraduate physics, and will be useful for those condensed matter physicists and chemists specializing in neutron theory and experimentation. This is the first North American volume in the newly inaugurated Oxford Series on .

With this full account of Huygens' optics, this book sheds new light on the history of seventeenth-century optics and the rise of the new mathematical sciences, as well as Huygens' oeuvre as a whole. Students of the history of optics, of early mathematical physics, and the Scientific Revolution, will find this book enlightening. This book provides an accessible introduction to the mathematical methods of quantum optics. Starting from first principles, it reveals how a given system of atoms and a field is mathematically modelled.
