General information on physical optics
Geometric optics, or ray optics, describes the propagation of light in terms of rays.
Ray optics in geometric optics is a useful abstraction to approximate the paths along which light propagates in certain circumstances.
The simplifying assumptions of geometric optics include that light rays: propagate in a straight line as they travel through a homogeneous medium at the interface between two dissimilar media and, under particular circumstances, can split in two.This course contains the following chapters : Mathematical background, Geometric optics and physics, Notions of spectral analysis, Overview of fluid mechanics, notions about the crystalline lens.
The objective of this course is to understand the basics of geometric optics.
