Introduction to Fourier Optics
This textbook deals with fourier analysis applications in optics, and in particular with its applications to diffraction, imaging, optical data processing, holography and optical communications. Fourier analysis is a universal tool that has found application within a wide range of areas in physics and engineering and this third edition has been written to help your students understand the complexity of a subject that can be challenging to grasp at times.
Chapters cover foundations of scalar diffraction theory, Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffraction moving onto Wave-Optics Analysis of Coherent Optical Systems and Wavefront Modulation. Joseph Goodman’s work in Electrical Engineering has been recognised by a variety of awards and honours, so his text is able to guide students through a comprehensive introduction into Fourier Optics.

This book is an outstanding classic. It is a must read for any systems engineering graduate student. Prof. Goodman's clarity and insight are without par.
This is an excellent book. It is clear and readable. I have always been able to find a coherent and understandable explanation for anything I have serached for.
