2: Sidebar 9.SB1: Supernumerary Rainbows
Airy invented his function in 1838 precisely to describe this phenomenon more accurately than Young had done in 1800 when pointing out that supernumerary rainbows require the wave theory of light and are impossible to explain with Newton’s picture of light as a stream of independent corpuscles. The house in the picture is Newton’s birthplace. …

6: Errata
  • Figures 36.3.9, 36.3.10, 36.3.11, 36.3.12


    Scales were corrected in all figures. The interval - 8.4 x - y 2 8.4 was replaced by - 12.0 x - y 2 12.0 and - 12.7 x + y 2 4.2 replaced by - 18.0 x + y 2 6.0 . All plots and interactive visualizations were regenerated to improve image quality.
