Summary and Info
Other volumes in the Wiley Series in Pure and Applied Optics... Statistical Optics, Joseph W. Goodman "The latest book by Professor Goodman...is the best all-around book on classical statistical optics...it is likely to become the standard reference for workers in the field." —Optical Engineering "The text is clearly and interestingly written.... Statistical Optics will be welcome as a guide to the parts of statistics needed in optics..." —Nature "This long-awaited book by J. W. Goodman may eventually have as strategic an impact on the field of modern optics as did his first book, Introduction to Fourier Optics, published in 1986. [Statistical Optics] should be included in anyone's library of key books in modern optics." —IEEE Journal of Quantum Mechanics "[Statistical Optics] is likely to remain a standard reference in this area for quite some time to come." —Physics Today "I strongly recommend this book both as a text for advanced students in optics and as a preliminary research volume for anyone interested in understanding the fluctuations in light." —Journal of Statistical Physics "[Statistical Optics is] essential bookshelf material for anyone who takes applied optics seriously." &mdsh;Foundations of Physics
