1 March 1974 A New Look At Methods Of Automatic Lens Design
Author Affiliations +
Different points of view which have been used by lens designers who have written automatic lens design programs are reviewed with emphasis on the idea that some points of view are relatively more productive of useful concepts for the lens optimization problem. Simplification of the linearized problem by linear transformations of the construction variable set and the defect set is discussed. With simplified linear equations some aspects of the nonlinear problem become more obvious, in particular, a separation of the problem into two parts is revealed which is important to the develop-ment of efficient algorithms.
