25.1 CHAPTER SUMMARY The relatively simple wave functions of Chapter 24 describe plane or spherical waves propagating in a uniform medium. ... The extension of this notion is Huygens a#39; principle: that each point on a wavefront can be considered a source of new waves, the ... in the aperture is a new wave source; this problem is then just an extension of the interference of equally spaced sources.
