Abstract

In Appendix A, we include a new translation of M. Alfred Cornu’s work, defining what is now known as the Cornu spiral. Early modeling of the diffraction response was facilitated by Cornu’s graphical representation of the Fresnel integral. The Cornu spiral is found in modern textbooks on diffraction because it provides an invaluable conceptual representation of the forward problem.
