Abstract
Carrying through the layout, design and engineering of an optical system is a major task of the optical engineer. Successful application of the techniques involved requires an understanding of why some of the simple formulae that are used for describing image, location, size, quality, and so on, apply as well as they do to the very complex nonlinear problem of optical imagery. This paper reviews some of the approaches used in optical engineering and indicates how they form a consistent model for the analysis of optical systems.
