## Main Question or Discussion Point

**Explanation for Rayleigh Criterion??**

I just want to ask what is the reason behind Rayleigh criterion which states that items are just resolved when the maxima of a diffraction pattern coincides with the first minima of the other diffraction pattern. I have tried finding the answer but to no avail. Can anyone help?

Thank you for your help in advance!
