Abstract

We consider imaging properties embedded in the point eikonal for first-order asymmetric optical systems. We provide geometrical interpretations for the coefficients of the eikonal functions and proceed to show that there exist differential relations between them. The differentials are computed with respect to the position of the reference planes in the object or image spaces.
