In this talk, I will continue to describe aspects of geometric optics, one of the main themes introduced earlier.  I also hope to describe a bit more about how this relates to some interesting properties of hyperbolic PDE.  In particular, I hope to motivate a bit more about why you may be interested in caustics, and why you may want to figure out a way to do geometric optics through a caustic.
