Chapter 3: The Optomechanical Constraint Equations
The influence functions for the object, the lens, and the detector control the position, orientation, and size of their image. Their influence functions can be combined into seven equations that control the position, orientation, and size of the images of both simple and complex optical systems. These seven equations are the optomechanical constraint equations and are developed here for a single-lens system and a multilens system.
