web Mathematica provides a good mathematical and graphical mechanism for using a web browser to study optics problems over the internet. Techniques for using web Mathematica to study interference, Fraunhofer and Fresnel diffraction, polarization, and Seidel and Zernike aberration will be described and illustrated. (See http://wyant.optics.arizona.edu/math.htm).
