"Goodman's Introduction to Fourier Optics explains scalar wave propagation and transfer functions that are essential for understanding the performance of imaging and other optical systems. It also covers several advanced topics. This is the clearest and best-written textbook I have ever read."
--James R. Fienup, Robert E. Hopkins Professor of Optics, University of Rochester
"Introduction to Fourier Optics provided me with my first introduction to this exciting field more than 30 years ago. Over the years it has continued to serve as a teaching resource, a reference book and a source of insights and inspiration for launching new research directions. Its clarity of presentation has set a gold standard for technical books possibly in all fields."
