Odak contains essential ingredients for research and development targeting Computer-Generated Holography.
We consult the beginners in this matter to
Goodman's Introduction to Fourier Optics book (ISBN-13: 978-0974707723) and
Principles of optics: electromagnetic theory of propagation, interference and diffraction of light from Max Born and Emil Wolf (ISBN 0-08-26482-4).
In the rest of this document, you will find engineering notes and relevant functions in Odak that helps you describing complex nature of light on a computer.
Note that, the creators of this documentation are from
Computational Displays domain, however the provided submodules can potentially aid other lines of research as well, such as
