About the book
In the second edition of this popular textbook, apart from extending the presentation, application of electromagnetic theory for remote sensing, relativistic electrodynamics, meteor astronomy etc. have been included. The work of pioneer investigators in respect of identity of light waves and electromagnetic waves so that the fundamental laws of optics can be derived from electromagnetic considerations, have been elaborated. Also, propagation through longer and longer distances have been extended.
