› Find signed collectible books: 'Electromagnetic Theory and Geometrical Optics (Monographs in Pure & Applied Mathematics)'
It may seem unnecessary at this late date to discuss the relationship of electromagnetic theory to geometrical optics. The content of both fields is well known and everyone knows also that geometrical optics is the limit for vanishing wave length of electromagnetic theory. Moreover, since Maxwell's theory supersedes the older geometrical optics, presumably, then, geometrical optics could be discarded. The optical industry continues to use it but perhaps that is because it is behind the times.
There are, however, at least three major reasons for pursuing and clarifying the relationship in question. The first is the purely theoretical or academic problem of building a mathematical bridge between the two domains, electromagnetic theory and geometrical optics. The older bases for asserting that geometrical optics is a limiting case of electromagnetic theory are vague and from a mathematical standpoint highly unsatisfactory.
The second major reason for the investigation is a practical one. To solve problems of electromagnetic theory, whether in the range of radio frequencies or visible light frequencies, one should solve Maxwell's equations with the appropriate initial and boundary conditions. However, as is well known, Maxwell's equations can be solved exactly in only a few problems. Hence physicists and engineers, especially those concerned with ultra-high frequency problems, have resorted to the simpler methods of geometrical optics. Although these methods have proved remarkably efficacious in the optical domain, they are intrinsically limited; they do not furnish information about some of the most important phenomena such as diffraction, polarization, and interference, to say nothing about the numerical accuracy of what geometrical optics does yield. Hence the practical question becomes whether the establishment of a better link between Maxwell's theory and geometrical optics will provide more accurate approximate methods of solving electromagnetic problems. Insofar as ultra-high frequency problems are concerned, the answer, based on work of the last ten years, can already be given affirmatively.

"Kline is a first-class teacher and an able writer. . . . This is an enlarging and a brilliant book." Scientific American
"Dr. Morris Kline has succeeded brilliantly in explaining the nature of much that is basic in math, and how it is used in science." San Francisco ChronicleSince the major branches of mathematics grew and expanded in conjunction with science, the most effective way to appreciate and understand mathematics is in terms of the study of nature. Unfortunately, the relationship of mathematics to the study of nature is neglected in dry, technique-oriented textbooks, and it has remained for Professor Morris Kline to describe the simultaneous growth of mathematics and the physical sciences in this remarkable book.In a manner that reflects both erudition and enthusiasm, the author provides a stimulating account of the development of basic mathematics from arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, to calculus, differential equations, and the non-Euclidean geometries. At the same time, Dr. Kline shows how mathematics is used in optics, astronomy, motion under the law of gravitation, acoustics, electromagnetism, and other phenomena. Historical and biographical materials are also included, while mathematical notation has been kept to a minimum.
This is an excellent presentation of mathematical ideas from the time of the Greeks to the modern era. It will be of great interest to the mathematically inclined high school and college student, as well as to any reader who wants to understand perhaps for the first time the true greatness of mathematical achievements.

This book indicts liberal arts undergraduate education. In view of rather oft-cited failings and shortcomings of education at all levels, why focus on undergraduate education? The liberal arts colleges are the heart of our entire educational system. Why is undergraduate education poor? The prime culprit is the overemphasis on research. This book discusses this problem in depth, with a focus on mathematics.
