Lenses and waves : Christiaan Huygens and the mathematical science of optics in the seventeenth century by Fokko Jan Dijksterhuis( Book )

30 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book discusses the development of Christiaan Huygens' wave theory, reconstructing the winding road that eventually led to Trade de la Lumiere. For the first time, the full range of manuscript sources is taken into account. In addition, the development of Huygens' thinking on the nature of light is put in the context of his optics as a whole, which was dominated by his lifelong pursuit of theoretical and practical dioptrics. In so doing, this book offers the first account of the development of Hygens' mathematical analysis of lenses and telescopes and its significance for the origin of the wave theory of light. Students of the history of optics, of early mathematical physics, and the Scientific Revolution, will find this book enlightening."--Jacket

In 1690, Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695) published Traité de la Lumière, containing his renowned wave theory of light. It is considered a landmark in seventeenth-century science, for the way Huygens mathematized the corpuscular nature of light and his probabilistic conception of natural knowledge. This book discusses the development of Huygens' wave theory, reconstructing the winding road that eventually led to Traité de la Lumière. For the first time, the full range of manuscript sources is taken into account. In addition, the development of Huygens' thinking on the nature of light is put in t
