Author Affiliations +
Interpolation and approximation methods for freeform surface synthesis are analyzed using the developed software tool. Special computer tool is developed and results of freeform surface modeling with piecewise linear interpolation, piecewise quadratic interpolation, cubic spline interpolation, Lagrange polynomial interpolation are considered. The most accurate interpolation method is recommended. Surface profiles are approximated with the square least method. The freeform systems are generated in optical design software.
