It will be of substantial use to undergraduate and graduate students of physics taking up courses in optics.

What do the terms ‘group velocity’ and ‘signal velocity’ signify? What is meant by a negative refractive index? What is transformation optics? What is the eikonal theory of geometrical optics? What is the nature of stationarity in Fermat’s principle? How is Gaussian optics related to linear optics? What is the dyadic theory of diffraction? What is a 4f correlator? What is mutual coherence?
