Abstract

The theory and the method of calculation of an optical system based on aberration parameters C, W, P are presented. These parameters define all the aberrations of optical systems. The method is based on the synthesis of multilens systems from the single elements. The formulas for the relationships of increments between the angles of the first paraxial ray and the increments in the basic parameters are introduced. These formulas permit the parameters to vary and correct the aberrations. These angle calculations of the first paraxial ray of a four-lens cemented and uncemented system are presented. It is a method for designing complex optical systems from the initial stage to the final stage with corrected aberrations.
