Optics

In this category the most relevant formulas in optics are listed. In classical optics the properties of the propagation of light rays are described. Since ancien times the fascinating properties of lenses are known which can be used either to magnify the images of very small objects for example in a microscope or to observe distant objects with an telescope. Furthermore, optic phenomena were very important for the development of the quantum theory where it was found out that light has not only the character of a wave but also of particles.
