Geometrical optics

  • Aristotle and Philoponus on Lightby Jean De Groot

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 49.95

    Originally published in 1991. Philoponus? long commentary on Aristotle?s definition of light sets up the major concerns, both in optics and theory of light, that are discussed here. Light was of special interest in Neoplatonism because of its being something incorporeal in the world of natural bodies. Light therefore had a special role in the philosophical... more...

  • Quantitative Coherent Imagingby J.M. Blackledge

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Quantitative Coherent Imaging: Theory, Methods and Some Applications discusses the principles of interpreting the structure and material properties of objects by the way in which they scatter electromagnetic and acoustic radiation. It presents an account of the fundamental physical principles which are common to nearly all imaging systems. The book... more...

  • Reflective Opticsby Dietrich Korsch

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    This is the first book dedicated exclusively to all-reflective imaging systems. It is a teaching tool as well as a practical design tool for anyone who specializes in optics, particularly for those interested in telescopes, infrared, and grazing-incidence systems. The first part of the book describes a unified geometric optical theory of all-reflective... more...

  • Intelligent Routinesby George Anastassiou; Iuliana Itan

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 279.00

    This book solves mathematical analysis problems using popular software packages. Besides fundamental theoretical notions, the book offers many exercises solved both mathematically and by computer, using Matlab 7.9, Mathcad 14, Mathematica 8 or Maple 15. more...

  • Geometric Opticsby Antonio Romano

    Birkhäuser Boston 2009; US$ 169.00

    This book-unique in the literature-provides readers with the mathematical background needed to design many of the optical combinations that are used in astronomical telescopes and cameras. The results presented in the work were obtained by using a different approach to third-order aberration theory as well as the extensive use of the software package... more...

  • Geometrical and Trigonometric Opticsby Eustace L. Dereniak; Teresa D. Dereniak

    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 80.00 US$ 65.60

    An ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate courses in geometrical optics; includes worked examples and exercises. more...

  • Opticsby Karl Dieter Moeller

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 124.00

    This new edition is intended for a one semester course in optics for juniors and seniors in science and engineering. It uses scripts from Maple, MathCad, Mathematica, and MATLAB to provide a simulated laboratory where students can learn by exploration and discovery. more...

  • The Mathematics of Geometrical and Physical Opticsby Orestes N. Stavroudis

    Wiley 2006; US$ 239.00 US$ 207.13

    In this sequel to his book, "The Optics of Rays, Wavefronts, and Caustics," Stavroudis not only covers his own research results, but also includes more recent developments. The book is divided into three parts, starting with basic mathematical concepts that are further applied in the book. Surface geometry is treated with classical mathematics, while... more...

  • Field Guide to Geometrical Opticsby John E. Greivenkamp

    SPIE 2004; US$ 36.00

    This Field Guide derives from the treatment of geometrical optics that has evolved from both the undergraduate and graduate programs at the Optical Sciences Center at the University of Arizona. The development is both rigorous and complete, and it features a consistent notation and sign convention. This volume covers Gaussian imagery, paraxial optics,... more...

  • Fundamental Optical Designby Michael J. Kidger

    SPIE 2001; US$ 65.00

    This book provides all the essential and best elements of Kidger's many courses taught worldwide on lens and optical design. It is written in a direct style that is compact, logical, and to the point--a tutorial in the best sense of the word. "I read my copy late last year and read it straight through, cover to cover. In fact, I read it no... more...
