Abstract
Phase space provides the natural formalism with which to formulate optical imaging problems as a system with constraints. We consider the general formulation of optical imaging problems and look at two examples. The first example is a completely asymmetric freeform prism that has titled surfaces. The second example is a GRIN media that is exactly solvable. This gives an alternative formalism to standard Seidel aberrations and nodal aberration theory that can be used in the design process.
