Review:

'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

Book Description:

Principles of Optics is one of the classic science books of the twentieth century, and probably the most influential book in optics published in the past 40 years. The new edition of this standard reference will continue to be invaluable to advanced undergraduates, graduate students and researchers working in most areas of optics.
