Work on orthogonal polynomials by Tatian has been incorporated into a computer program for interferogram analysis. For obscured-aperture optical systems, the data reduction is far more accurate than with programs based only on Zernike polynomials. Results are shown for spherical aberration, coma, and astigmatism.
