Hi brilliant friends, I have started learning optics this week and looked for problems that deal with polarization and refraction.Most of those problem I found require the use of calculus methods.So my question is how much concepts of calculus do I need and if it is possible what are some of the calculus topics I need to cover for the best learning of optics.

Calculus isn't necessary for an introductory lesson in optics. You could use resnick books, And regarding calculus, personally l learned calculus using stuarts calculus.Log in to reply
