About the Author

G.A.Brooker, University Lecturer in the Department of Physics, Oxford University; Fellow and Tutor of Wadham College, Oxford. Held a Post-doctoral Fellowship at Harvard University in the years 1964-67 working in the then-new field of laser physics, followed by a Post-doctoral Fellowship in the Department of Physics, Oxford from 1967-69 working on measurements of electro-optic coefficients of transparent crystals and a Fellowship by Special Election at Wadham College, Oxford from 1969-70.


... a well-thought-through and coordinated collection of problems in modern classical (or simply classical) optics ... The book itself is written in an entertaining and almost colloquial way ... offers a wealth of well formulated problems in classical optics, which are bound to get the student reader thinking. ChemPhysChem This book is excellent as an undergraduate text for the fourth year of an M.Phys. course and could provide plenty of material for discussion in tutorial sessions.
