The problem of compensation for atmospheric distortions of a wavefront has been studied for a sufficiently long time. The first papers on this subject were published in the mid 1960s. At that time, however, the engineering base gave no way for designing the efficient devices for compensating for atmospheric distortions. In recent years much progress has been made in developing wavefront sensors and correctors and then fitting the optical facilities operating under atmospheric distortions with these devices. In this connection there has been an increased interest in theoretical works concerning the optical design and configuration of the wavefront corrections.
