The different methods of optical systems' optimization such as Newton and Least Squares along with their modification are discussed. Monte-Carlo technique as an statistical method which can overcome the shortcoming of those classic methods (such as the rate of convergence, the possibility of finding the overall minimum and avoiding local minima) is presented and compared with the other ones. An numerical example is presented to verify the method.
