I will give an overview of some recent mathematical results in the field of approximate Transformation Optics. The physical models discussed will range from the (single frequency) Helmholtz Equation to the full (non-local) Wave Equation. Time permitting I will also discuss optimization of approximate cloaks and the associated improved invisibility.
