Title:Some reflections on mirrors
Seminar:MASS Colloquium
Speaker:Ron Perline, Drexel University
Abstract:
Some simple geometry can make surprisingly important contributions to aspects of mirror design. I will talk about three mirror designs and their simple associated mathematics: rectifying mirrors, equiareal mirrors, and sideways mirrors. Basic differential equations theory, vector calculus and some geometry are the only pre-requisites.
