Hello. I am very well versed in my mathematics(Mary Boas, Mathematical Methods of the Physical Sciences, all problems done, Courant Hilbert, Methods of Mathematical Physics,Real and Complex analysis Walter Rudin)
I want an optics text that will assume all knowledge of mathematics but that does not assume previous knowledge on optics. I would also appreciate a thermodynamics text that assumes all knowledge on mathematics but nothing on thermodynamics.(classic examples of the wrong book include fermi's book on thermodynamics. it is assumed that you know all elementary results of thermodynamics)
