Abstract

The optics of reflection, refraction, and interference which we all learn in school is elementary, but can be used as a stepping stone to very interesting physical and mathematical concepts and applications which are even the subject of current research. This theme will be illustrated by gravitational lensing and the interference of polarised light.
