Abstract
Convergence properties of power series expansions in Seidel aberration theory can be studied from exact mathematical descriptions of wavefronts refracted by spherical surfaces. A generalization of Huygens' principle is suggested in order to study composite systems. Legendre transformation allows us to relate the solutions of eikonal equation to Hamilton characteristic functions.
