Abstract

The general transformation properties of aberrations in cylindrically symmetric optical systems are described using matrix analysis. The aberrations in an optical system can change with any change in the position of the aperture stop, or when the system operates at new conjugates even if the relative positions of the refractive surfaces and their powers are fixed. Expanding the wavefront aberration function in terms of aberration coefficients allows the new aberration coefficients to be written as linear combinations of the old aberration coefficients for every order. A pattern is established by which higher-order aberration transformations can be calculated.
