## Diffraction, Fourier Optics and ImagingThis book presents current theories of diffraction, imaging, and related topics based on Fourier analysis and synthesis techniques, which are essential for understanding, analyzing, and synthesizing modern imaging, optical communications and networking, as well as micro/nano systems. Applications covered include tomography; magnetic resonance imaging; synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and interferometric SAR; optical communications and networking devices; computer-generated holograms and analog holograms; and wireless systems using EM waves. |

Marvellous.....simplicity and elegant explanation is at the peak of clarity.Wide coverage of topics in a systematic and consize way. A student is sure to benefit from such a book.

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

This is a pretty good book on optical diffraction & Fourier optics. The first half is very similar to Goodman's Fourier Optics book, but Ersoy adds a few topics like inverse diffraction. In the second half, he adds interesting topics like digital holography. The main drawback to this book is the number of typographical errors.
