Optics is the branch of physics that studies the behaviour and properties of light, including its interactions with matter and the construction of instruments that use or detect it. Optics usually describes the behaviour of visible, ultraviolet, and infrared light. Because light is an electromagnetic wave, other forms of electromagnetic radiation such as X-rays, microwaves, and radio waves. Robert Grosseteste (/ ˈ ɡ r oʊ s t ɛ s t / GROHS-test; Latin: Robertus Grosseteste; c. – 9 October ) was an English statesman, scholastic philosopher, theologian, scientist and Bishop of was born of humble parents at Stradbroke in his death, he was almost universally revered as a saint in England, but attempts to procure a formal canonisation essor: Hugh of Wells. This book is an up to date, introductory treatment of geometrical optics, from the point of view of the future optics practitioner. The principles of gaussian optics and first-order layout and design are emphasized, based on the tracing of two paraxial rays and the associated optical by: This book is both a primer for professionals called upon to design optical systems and an ideal text for courses in modern geometrical optics.

Geometric optics itself is a few concepts, and any good text will cover it: Born & Wolf, "Principles of Optics" Hecht & Zajak, "Optics" both contain good summaries of geometric optics, with the Born & Wolf one being much more thorough, but more arcane (the notation used in equations is .
