Goals

Being able to calculate the position of real or virtual images and also their characteristics for a centered optical system. Being able to do ray tracing for centered optical systems.
Understand the concepts of light waves and optical intensity. Understand the concepts of interference and diffraction. Being able to calculate the optical intensity of an interference pattern produced by an interferometer. Being able to calculate the light intensity in a plane located at infinity after diffraction caused by a circular or rectangular aperture.
Being able to use the different theories of optics and to use them appropriately.
