Along with the traditional topics of the discipline, the book includes a number of new modifications and generalizations of the method, such as the space-time geometrical optics of dispersive media in its most general form, the theory of normal wave conversion in weakly anisotropic inhomogeneous media using a quasi-isotropic approximation, and new versions of perturbation theory for rays, to name a few.

An important new feature is the formulation of universally valid boundaries of applicability for the ray method, based upon the concept of Fresnel volume for rays. The general theoretical discussion is illustrated by numerous examples related to optics, acoustics, plasma physics, and radio-wave sciences.

An extensive list of references covering all the topics discussed is provided.
