Abstract

Analytic solutions are found for skew ray paths in inhomogeneous cylindrical systems such as GRIN rods and gas lenses, which focus rays by virtue of a gradual radial decrease in refractive index. The solutions are obtained by employing digital computers to carry out analytic, as opposed to numerical, calculations.
