very good nice book

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

Very easy to understand and excellent introduction to Optics.The text style is rather informal, and very clear, and many of the concepts and results presented are exposed in an intuitive way. I would like to recommend this book to everyone -- undergraduate, graduate, or beyond -- who needs an excellent, beautifully clear introduction to Optics.
