Offers a heuristic explanation of the physics of acousto-optics and presents the mathematics of the formal theory. After historical background, chapters cover the heuristic, formal, and numerical approaches, applications including the Quasi Theorem and Bragg diffraction, and related fields and special topics such as spectral formalisms. Includes reference appendices and a summary of research and design formulas. This second edition is revised since the first edition in 1988 to reflect increased contact with researchers from the former Soviet Union, increased interest in signal processing and acousto-optic tunable fibers, and the development of more powerful formalisms and algorithms. It also puts more emphasis on applications and numerical methods. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
