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 conicsection surfaces of revolution is considered separately. The formulas are suitable for use in computer programs for automatic computation of optical aberration coefficients.
