Introduction to Wave Optics
Light is an electromagnetic wave propagating as a disturbance in the electric and magnetic fields. These fields continually generate each other, as the wave propagates through space and oscillates in time. The Maxwell equations give rise to the wave equation that enumerates the propagation of electromagnetic waves.
