Principles of Optics is one of the classic science books of the twentieth century, and probably the most influential book in optics published in the past 40 years. The new edition is the first ever thoroughly revised and updated edition of this standard text and contains much new material. This standard work has been on the market for nearly 40 years and reprinted 16 times. The new edition will continue to be invaluable to advanced undergraduates, graduate students and researchers working in most areas of optics.From the Back Cover:
Principles of Optics is one of the classic science books of the twentieth century. It presents optics deductively as a system based on Maxwell's equations. It deals with those optical phenomena that can be described with the help of a continuous distribution of matter and aims at giving a complete picture of our knowledge of optics as a whole.
This standard reference continues to be invaluable to advanced undergraduates, graduate students and researchers working in most areas of optics.
