Magic with complex exponentials
We dont really know what aspects of complex variables you learned about in
high school, so the goal here is to start more or less from scratch. Feedback

We will raise this conjecture (Whose intent Will from now on be referred to
as the "Principle of Relativity) to the status of a postulate, and also intro-

Introduction
The intensity of light reflected from the surface of a dielectric, as a function of the angle
of incidence was first obtained by Fresnel in 1827.

Einstein postulated that in an inertial reference frame
1) Relativity holds
2) C = constant
For these to be true, we find that the timing of and distances between events must change depending
on our refer

How to add sine functions of different amplitude and phase
In these notes, I will show you how to add two sinusoidal waves, each of different amplitude and
phase, to get a third sinusoidal wave. That is, we wish to show that given
