I Optical Path with a light source inside a gradient medium

  1. Dec 1, 2018 #1
    I am wondering if anyone could point be to any references for gradient optics.
    The current literature seems a little haphazard.

    The model I am looking for would need to consider the following.

    Single medium whose optical density (index of refraction) is some gradient index of refraction
    Source of light is INSIDE that medium. This means there is no discrete boundary.

    Any help would be appreciated. THX
