'Principles of Optics is a great book, the seventh edition is a fine one, and if you work in the field you probably ought to own it.' Physics Today
'The seventh edition of this classic optics text is the most thoroughly revised and expanded version since it was first published in 1959. The first chapters lay the foundations of the field of optics, covering basic properties of the electromagnetic field, polarization, dispersion and geometric optics. The chapter dedicated to optical imaging features new material about computerized axial tomography, while a whole new chapter covers scattering from inhomogeneous media including diffraction tomography. The text concludes with the optics of crystals, which introduces the reader to nonlinear optical phenomena.' Max Born and Emil Wolf, 'All-Time Favourites', Nature Photonics
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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
