An expansion of the angle characteristic for a rotationally symmetric, aspherical surface of 4th order is presented. It contains both odd and even order homogeneous functions of its variables. To emphasize the importance of angle characteristic expansions, the relationship between the angle characteristic and the Buchdahl quasi-invariant is enunciated. In order to improve, for a given finite aperture, the overall accuracy of predictions based on 3rd order aberration theory, the possible use of general 4th order surface equations for the representation of spherical surfaces is considered.
