In this talk we present a series of illustrative topics in Fourier Optics that are proving valuable in the design of EDOF
camera systems. They are at the level of final examination problems that have been made solvable by a student or
professoi having studied from one of Joseph W. Goodman's books---our tribute for his 75fr year. As time permits,
four illustrative topics are l) Electromagnetic waves and Fourier optics;2) The perfect lens; 3) Connection between
phase delay and radially varying focal length in an asphere and 4) tailored EDOF designs.
