This tutorial is concerned with system design, more particularly with the first-order design of image-forming systems. I will attempt to survey the basic concepts and methods used in this field, with the exception of radiometric considerations, which will be covered in another tutorial. Much of the material has been extracted from my background notes on the subject(1), which may be consulted, along with the other references, for further detail.
