1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Hey I have a question regarding the Huygens Fresnells transformation.
The formula is often written E(p)= (j/lambda*R)*exp(jkR).... and so on.



2. Relevant equations
What is physical meaning of the complex constant j and lambda in the front of the integral?
In some versions of the huygens fresnell it isn't even there ???

3. The attempt at a solution
