The initial stimulus to the writing of this book came when we decided to begin the course with a study of optics and to write a set of class notes on optics. The rest of the book has evolved from this beginning because of our desire to carry students into physics as deeply as possible in this introductory course. Our primary reason for starting with optics was that our students would then be able to study mechanics taking full advantage of the calculus, which they study concurrently. Another of the advantages in studying optics first is that it may be treated phenomenologically, to give the students an early introduction to the interplay of theory and experiment and thus provide an illustration of the way in which a science develops.
