Abstract
In an effort to get larger primary mirrors for both space and ground-based telescopes, many proposed designs are either segmented or adaptive or both. This paper discuses many practical analysis issues concerning the prediction of performance of these large mirrors. Topics include 1) correctability with and without focus control, 2) dynamic response analysis, 3) segment pointing and surface RMS.
