Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Could you please help me understand the Fresnel integral and Green's functions? Could you please explain the Fresnel integral and/or Green's function like you would to at least a first-year undergrad?

I have the goal of learning/gaining an intuition of the Fresnel integral and Green's functions while only having Calc I and II and linear algebra. I don't need to understand it 100%, but I at least seek a general intuition of what the heck it is!

Thanks, I know this may not be the easiest explanation, but I really appreciate it!
