Principles of Lasers and Optics
Principles of Lasers and Optics
Radiation from lasers is different from conventional optical light because, like
microwave radiation, it is approximately monochromatic. Although each laser has
its own fine spectral distribution and noise properties, the electric and magnetic
fields from lasers are considered to have precise phase and amplitude variations

The Nothing That Is: A Natural History of Zero
The Nothing That Is: A Natural History of Zero
A symbol for what is not there, an emptiness that increases any number it's added to, an inexhaustible and indispensable paradox. As we enter the year 2000, zero is once again making its presence felt. Nothing itself, it makes possible a myriad of calculations. Indeed, without zero mathematics as we know it would not exist. And without mathematics...
