Caustics (from the Greek kaustikos, kaiein, ‘to burn’) are geometrical entities formed by the singular concentration of curves, which model approximately the behavior of light rays focused by lenses or curved mirrors, leading to very bright regions when they encounter a surface. The light patterns at the bottom of swimming pools are examples of caustics, produced by the refraction on the wavy surface of water. In this computer image are discovered light caustics produced by two consecutive wavy surfaces, as if light was entering a second sea under the sea.
