This short and intensive advanced undergraduate level course starts with the understanding of light as an electromagnetic wave. Optical phenomena in nature and technology and the underlying concepts are explored using mathematical ideas and tools, experimental demonstrations, and computer simulations. Problem-solving and discussion sessions are interwoven with the lectures. The physical ideas and mathematical models lead to least action and phase space in classical physics and wave functions in quantum physics.
Prerequisites: Complex numbers, Matrices, Calculus. Experience with a programming language is desirable.
This summer course is meant for undergraduate and masters students in science and engineering.
