Hello there and welcome to the webpage dedicated to my project for Mathematical Modeling. My name is Sean Flaherty and, for my senior project in Mathematical Modeling, I have chosen to combine some fundamental concepts of both math and physics. In particular, I am using matrices (Linear Algebra) to represent certain behaviors belonging to the refraction of light (Optics) and then analyzing the results in hopes of developing a theoretical model for a zoom lens. This having been said, it should come as no surprise to you that the title is. In your navigation through this site, I hope that you will find my project to be informative and, with a little luck, mildly interesting.Building a Zoom Lens: Matrix Methods in Optics
