In this first book of its kind, Paganin covers x-ray wave-fields in free space, including Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffraction, Kirshcoff and Rayleigh-Sommerfeld diffraction theory and partially coherent fields, x-ray interactions with matter, including wave equations in the presence of scatterers, Born series and dynamic scattering and multislice approximation, x-ray sources and their optical elements and detectors, including diffractive, reflective and refractive optical elements as will as virtual optical elements, coherent x-ray imaging including holography and phase retrieval and singular x-ray optics such as Nodal lines, domain walls and other topological phase defects and polynomial vortex solutions to the d'Alembert equation.
