Abstract

The generalized sine condition for an image-forming system with centering errors but allowing for one symmetry plane is derived according to the Fourier optics approach. The variation of the wave-front-aberration function associated with a small displacement of field coordinates is given. The symmetry properties of aberrations are discussed.
