This book,Basic Optics: A Survey of Concepts is a lucid, exhaustive, and in-depth presentation of the basic concepts
in optics covering a wide area. It focuses on the inner integrity of these concepts, all relating to the classical and quantum versions of electromagnetic theory. It brings out the essential charm and elegance of physics.
It will be of substantial use to undergraduate and graduate students of physics taking up courses in optics.
This is a source-book of basic concepts in physics at the high-school to graduate levels. It is highly
readable and, at the same time serious in its approach. It builds up the concepts from an elementary
level, using only high school mathematics, while being exhaustive and logically complete in presenting
these concepts. It will be a valuable volume for students and teachers in physics as also in other related
disciplines like chemistry, geology, and the various engineering subjects. Learn more
