He developed a wave theory of light opposed to the corpuscular theory of Newton and formulated Huygens's principle, which holds that, concerning light waves, every point on a wave front is itself a source of new waves. His importance to music theory lies in the Novus cyclus harmonicus (1661) in which he demonstrated the mathematical basis of the old theory of division of the octave into 31 equal parts. The article will appear in the magazine's . Introduces classical concepts of geometrical and physical optics with rigorous connections to fundamental theories of light--Fermat's principle, Huygen's principle, and Maxwell's equations. Second son of Constantijn Huygens. The Christiaan Huygens Biography shows him to be an important figure in the Scientific Revolution. And for the mathematically inclined, go here to see how Huygens' Principle has been expanded upon. With thanks to The each step of the animation. The laws of reflection and refraction according to the Huygens' Principle. In the field of mathematics and physics, Huygens wrote several publications on probability theory, worked on the law of motion, and became well known for his wave theory of light from 1678. The Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn; Asteroid 2801 Huygens; Huygens crater on Mars; Huygens mountain on the moon; Huygens-Fresnel principle; Huygens Laboratory; W.I.S.V. A published author, his first book was on probable theory, and later wrote one on mathematical and practical detail. Including a patent on a pocket watch. The field, which applies mathematical principles similar to those in Einstein's theory of general relativity, will be described in an article to be published Friday (Oct.
