Item description for Optics: Problems And Solutions by Antonio Siciliano...
Optics has been a subject of fascinating investigation in the last three centuries by a large number of eminent scientists. With the advent of modern technologies (Personal Computers, Internet and specialized software like MATLAB), new methods and tools for the solution of problems encountered in Optics are now available. Written with the student of Physics and Engineering in mind, this textbook shows how to solve the typical examination questions. In addition the author has included the solutions of many real and difficult problems encountered by the practicing Physicists and Engineers. The book is liberally and beautifully illustrated with diagrams from the MATHLAB software. Readers can refer to MATHLAB scripts using a complementary virtual booklet that will also include corrections, to unavoidable errors present in this book, supplementary problems, and readers' suggestions.

Reviews - What do customers think about Optics: Problems And Solutions?
A good source of example problems and approaches in optics Apr 6, 2008
There is a lack of books that contain explanatory prose, equations, and figures and accompanying worked out numerical problems in optics. This book helps bridge the gap. Schaum's Outline of Optics is another good book along these lines, although I feel this book is better because it has more detailed preliminary discussions of equations and plenty of good figures to accompany both explanations and problems. This book is still a little short on explanation though, and I suggest the extremely economicalIntroduction to Modern Optics to accompany this book. Together these two books provide a very practical look at optics. For a more formal and academic approach combine the textbook Optics (4th Edition) with Schaum's Outline of Optics for the purpose of solving practice problems. However, this latter option will likely be much more costly.
