This new edition of Óptica has been guided by three main imperatives:
- Improve pedagogical aspects.
- Continue modernizing the treatment (for example, with expanded information on photons, phasors and Fourier theory).
- Update content to keep pace with technological advances (for example, the book now talks about interferometers and metamaterials).
Optics is a rapidly evolving field and this edition is strengthened by providing an updated approach to the discipline, while also focusing on pedagogy.
As a result, this 5th edition addresses dozens of small reinforcing elements that address issues not sufficiently defined previously. Each graphic element has been studied for accuracy and precision and modified when deemed necessary to improve readability and pedagogical effectiveness.
