What is Geometrical optics?

Geometrical optics, or ray optics, is a model of optics that describes light propagation in terms of rays. The ray in geometric optics is an abstraction useful for approximating the paths along which light propagates under certain circumstances.

Geometrical optics is arguably the most classical and traditional of the branches of physical science. The optical design of instruments and devices has been worked out and improved over centuries. From the telescopes of Galileo to the contemporary camera lens, progress, although impressive, has been largely evolutionary, with modern design benefiting enormously from the availability of fast, relatively inexpensive digital computers.
