Abstract NotePresents an introduction to optics and elasticity. This book discusses variable curvature and multimode deformable mirrors, as well as, in depth, active optics, its theory and applications. It also covers optical design utilizing the Schmidt concept and various types of Schmidt correctors, as well as the elasticity theory of thin plates
