Abstract

Formulas are presented for the computation of derivatives of the optical aberration functions S, T, V, W, and K with respect to the surface parameters for symmetrical optical systems. The important case of conic-section surfaces of revolution is considered separately. The formulas are suitable for use in computer programs for automatic computation of optical aberration coefficients.
