Abstract
Mathematical models are used to establish the exact path of a beam reflected by a plane mirror in terms of the mirror geometry descriptors. In particular, the mirror geometry descriptors (tilt angles) are determined as functions of the beam path in image space. This is also useful for determining scan patterns when the mirror is used as a scanning device. These formulations are readily adaptable to commercially available ray tracing programs.
