Item description for Introduction to Geometrical Optics by Milton Katz...
Introduction to Geometrical Optics is an in-depth treatment of paraxial optics. Only a knowledge of plane geometry, trigonometry and algebra is required. The single surface serves as the basis for understanding refraction and reflection and leads to the object/image properties of thin and thick lenses. Considerable care is taken to master the sign convention needed for solving problems. The remaining 40% of the book covers stops, numerical aperture, resolution, optical instruments trigonometric calculations and aberrations.
