# Introduction to Fourier optics

@inproceedings{Goodman1968IntroductionTF, title={Introduction to Fourier optics}, author={Joseph W. Goodman}, year={1968} }

The second edition of this respected text considerably expands the original and reflects the tremendous advances made in the discipline since 1968. All material has been thoroughly updated and several new sections explore recent progress in important areas, such as wavelength modulation, analog information processing, and holography. Fourier analysis is a ubiquitous tool with applications in diverse areas of physics and engineering. This book explores these applications in the field of optics… Expand
