How much mathematics should optics students know?
Author(s): Anna Consortini

Paper Abstract

An attempt is made to answer the question of how much mathematics optics students should know, not only to understand optics, but also to be able to work with optics in the future. Fundamental optics and also some fields of application in optics or related disciplines are examined, in order to specify the mathematics required.
