This edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with new material covering the CAT scan, interference with broad-band light and the so-called Rayleigh-Sommerfeld diffraction theory. This edition also details scattering from inhomogeneous media and presents an account of the principles of diffraction tomography to which Emil Wolf has made a basic contribution. Several new appendices are also included. This new edition will be invaluable to advanced undergraduates, graduate students and researchers working in most areas of optics.Hide synopsis

This great text was originally composed by Nobel Laureate Prof. Max Born and Prof. Emil Wolf in 1959. Soon it became a widely recognized material for researchers in the fields of electromagnetism, optics, material science, and many other engineering disciplines, after many times of revision in the following half century. Rigorous modeling and derivation procedures are found everywhere in the book, along with physical insights associated with each topic. This volume has became a must-have book for researchers in physics and engineering, serving as both an introductory and advanced reference material. As a researcher in engineering, I found this book extremely useful for studying every research problem about electromagnetic waves. Clear logical reduction process is the style of this book. Many people may find it complementary to other recent application-oriented books for its focus on theoretical background.
