Votre note
The first ever thoroughly revised and expanded edition of one of the classic books on optics of the twentieth century. New material includes an account of the CAT scan (computerized axial tomography). An expanded section on diffraction, including an account of the Rayleigh-Sommerfeld theory. Explanation of effects of spatial coherence on the spectrum of light, illustrated by Young's interference experiment with broad-band light. New chapter on both scalar and electromagnetic scattering, including derivation and discussion of the optical cross-section theorem, development of the Born and the Rytov series, definitive account of diffraction tomography. New appendices include an account of energy conservation in scalar wavefields Jones'lemma on asymptotic behaviour of certain integrals.

Max Born was one of the most distinguished and influential physicists of this century. Although he was awarded the Nobel Prize for his fundamental researches in quantum mechanics, he made also substantial contributions to other branches of physics, for example to the theory of lattice dynamics of crystals. He created a leading school of theoretical physics at Göttingen University, which had a major impact on the development of physics. From 1936 until his retirement in 1953 he was the Tait Professor of Natural Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh. Born was a prolific writer, who published about 360 papers and 30 books. He received numerous honors apart from the Nobel Prize ; he was elected fellow of learned academies throughout the world and he was awarded many honorary degrees. Emil Wolf is the Wilson Professor of Optical Physics at the University of Rochester. He received B. Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Bristol University and a D. Sc. degree from the University of Edinburgh. He joined Max Born there in 1951 to collaborate with him in the writing of " Principles of Optics ". He was Max Borns last assistant. In addition to Principles of Optics, Professor Wolf is the co-author, with Professor Leonard Mandel, of a comprehensive text Optical Coherence and Quantum Optics, and he is the editor of a well known series, Progress in Optics. His numerous contributions to optics are well known and have been recognized by many awards, including seven honorary doctorates. Professor Wolf was President of the Optical Society of America in 1978 and is an honorary member of that society, as well as of the Optical Societies of India and Australia.
