A new approach for structural synthesis of optically compensated zoom lenses is reported. An implementation of evolutionary programming facilitates the procedure by carrying out a global search over the available degrees of freedom, namely, powers of the components and the inter-component separations. Practical success of the method depends on suitable formulation of the fitness function. Normalization of the variables is carried out to get an insight on the optimum structures. Illustrative numerical results are presented.
