## First copy of Mathematical Methods for Optical Physics and Engineering arrived!

This morning was a personal milestone for me: the very first copy of my new textbook, Mathematical Methods for Optical Physics and Engineering, arrived at my office!

I’m very excited, obviously!  The book is now available through Amazon.co.uk for those in Europe; it should be available at the end of January on Amazon.com in the United States.  You can also look it up on the Cambridge website.  Now I’ve got to finish my draft of the solutions manual for it…

Yay!!! I’m first to say “congratulations!” on your blog!!!

• Thanks dear!!!

• the Wife says:

That comment may have seen somewhat self-serving now that I re-read it. Ooops. The “Yay” was for you and not for me to be the first to post.

• I interpreted in the most charitable way! 🙂

Congrats!!!

Left as a trivial exercise for the interested reader.

• That *would* save me a lot of work. I might get lynched by a bunch of angry math methods profs, though…

• Lowell says:

Is the solution manual going to be hard or soft back? Are you including the implementation for specific symbolic computation package?

5. Congrats!

Congratulations. I think I must get myself a copy.

Amazon.co.uk are dispatching mine tmrw…. just in time for exams in Feb.

Congratulations

I believe a certain amount of praise and congratualtions are in order young sir!

• Thank you — both for the congratulations and the “young” characterization! 😛

• Thony C. says:

As you are with certainty a couple of decades younger than myself you are indeed young sir!

9. Lowell says:

Can I get the inside cover of mine signed by the man himself, can I, can I, can I? (soon as it gets to me anyway).

10. Bob says:

Congrats! Will there be a book tour?

• Probably not a tour — I don’t think they make enough money off these things to justify it! 😛 I will, of course, shamelessly plug the book everywhere *I* go.

Sweet textbook, I picked it up a few weeks ago and I am trying to do most of the questions before the end of the summer. i googled for the solutions manual to check answers and ended up on this blog. Seems the solution manual doesn’t exist yet.oh well. Just thought I would let the author know students are already appreciating it.

• Thank you very much! I’m trying to finish the solutions manual this summer…

good,but we students from poor country/developing country need help to read freely all the page even if copy right is not allowed to us
