Fourier Series and Optical Transform Techniques in ContemporaryOptics

An Introduction

For anyone new to Fourier methods, this remarkable book willilluminate the subject like no other currently available. With over280 illustrations generated by computer graphics, it depicts in3-space (rather than the usual 2-space) the many basic functions ofoptical diffraction and imaging. These mind-stretchingvisualizations give the reader an enhanced understanding of bothFourier transform techniques and key principles in optics. At thesame time, the author provides a lucid text that covers wavenotation, the Fourier analysis of signals, the processing of lightin diffraction phenomena and imaging, Zernicke polynomials, Fouriertransforms for Fresnel diffraction, laser beacon adaptive optics,and related topics.

Ideal for self-teaching, this book is highly recommended forworking engineers, technical staff, students of physical optics andsignal analysis, and Fourier novices in all fields.
