Mathematica and CDFs

Using Mathematica to Solve Optics Problems

Mathematica can be used to solve most math problems. The free Wolfram CDF player can bring documents created using Mathematica to life and the interactive documents can be viewed using a web browser. On this web site I am illustrating a few examples of what can be done using Mathematica and the CDF Reader to solve some optics problems. The CDF Reader can be downloaded at
