Mathematical Devices for Optical Sciences

Overview

The Lorentz group which is the underlying scientific language for modern optics has been most notably used for understanding Einstein's special relativity. By using a simplified approach of two-by-two matrices and Wigner functions, this book provides a basic and novel approach to classical and quantum optics, making these often-difficult subjects more transparent to the reader. Written by three experts in the field, Professors Sibel Baskal, Young S. Kim, and Marilyn E. Noz, this book will give the reader a comprehensive overview of how fundamental issues in quantum mechanics can be approached using various optical instruments, Wigner functions, and quantum entanglement.

Author Information

Professor Young S. Kim graduated from Princeton University in 1961 and has been a faculty member of the University of Maryland since 1962. As a well-respected and extremely learned physicist, he has published numerous works throughout his extensive career and continues to work closely with pupils and colleagues as well as continuing his own research in particle theory, quantum mechanics, and further contents of Einstein's work. Professor Sibel Baskal is Physics Professor at the Middle East Technical University. She is particularly interested in the manifestations of the Poincare and little groups, and of group contractions in physical sciences. Her research interests extend to current problems in classical field theories, mostly on alternative approaches to Einstein's gravity. She has published more than 30 peer-reviewed papers and is the co-author of two books with Y.S.Kim and M.E.Noz. Professor Marilyn E. Noz is Professor Emerita in the Department of Radiology at NYU School of Medicine. Over the last more than 40 years, she has collaborated with Professor Kim on relativistic quantum mechanics using two-by-two matrices, harmonics oscillators, and the Lorentz group. She has contributed to over 40 peer-reviewed journal articles in elementary particle physics and optics. She has written three books with Professor Kim and two books with Professors Kim and Baskal. She continues to do research in elementary particle physics and quantum optics.
