Lectures on Mathematical Optics Part of Lecture Notes for course

Summary: Lectures on Mathematical Optics
Part of Lecture Notes for course
Mathematical Aspects of Modern Optics
And Its Applications
January -- February 2001 at Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia,
in bi-national cooperation Netherlands -- Indonesia,
KNAW - project Nonlinear Optics
in priority area EPAM (Extended Programme Applied Mathematics)
Light is basically a wave phenomenon and the characteristic interference domi-
nates the appearance of many phenomena and is the basis for many technological
Mathematical modelling of the penomena is a challenge that was started by
scientiŞc giants like Huygens, Newton and Maxwell. The investigations of these
models have proŞted, and are still proŞting, from mathematical-physical meth-
ods and, on the other hand, stimulated the development of these methods.
This part of the Lecture Notes is written in the spirit of the interplay between
natural phenomena -- physics --
-- math modelling -- analytical & numerical methods.
I hope that the enthusiasm I've felt in the past years of working in this direction
in perfect collaboration with Hugo Hoekstra and others is noticeable in these
