When light has a wavelength l much smaller than objects that it
interacts with, we can treat light as composed of straight-line rays.
This regime is called geometric optics.

Spherical reflecting surfaces can be concave or
convex. (concave is when the mirror is silvered
on the outer surface while convex is the other
kind.)

Light can also be polarized by reflection. It is 100% polarized in
the direction parallel to the reflecting surface when the angle of
incidence = brewster angle = tan-1 (nb/na)

For light traveling from a to b where na > nb, as the angle of
incidence becomes more and more acute, the light ceases to be
transmitted, only reflected. crit = sin-1(nb/na)
