# Optics

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 really is not required to some extent in the optics part..! The knowledge of general simle techniques would be enough..

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.
