How to Learn More About Airy Beams?

  1. Aug 26, 2014 #1
    I came across this article was incredibly interested. I've read the paper and the material was completely over my head. What should I, with a high school level education and no background in optics, do to have a complete understanding of the topic discussed in the paper? What sciences would I have to learn to get it? Many thanks.

    You need to learn about optics in general. There are plenty of books on the subject, but you'd also need to dive into calculus and other math as well.
