This book presents singular optics in a gradual and systematic manner and bridges the gap between a seasoned researcher and a student who aims to pursue research in this topic. The book includes illustrations, examples and references that will enable the reader to conceive their own ideas as they discover more about singular optics.
Singularities in Physics and Engineering gives a thorough introduction to singularities and their development. It explains, in detail, important topics such as the types of singularities, their properties, detection and application, and emerging research trends. With new advances being generated continuously, the vibrant field of optics is covered here to give an essential foundation for all students and researchers interested in singular optics.
