Abstract
We demonstrate that the curvature equation can be modified using some properties of Distributions theory for segmented mirror techniques. It is shown that, additionally to the individual segment aberrations, the modified equation contains the information about the relative pistons and tip- tilts among the segments. The validity of the equation is verified by numerical simulations and by a laboratory experiment as well.
