Abstract

This work deals with an analysis of an influence of the third-order aberration design of an optical system for a specific position of the object on the diameter of the circle of confusion, the centroid of the spot diagram, and the position of the optimum image. Explicit analytical formulas are derived for the calculation of fundamental third-order aberration coefficients for an arbitrary value of the transverse magnification of the optical system. Analytical formulas are also derived for the calculation of the third-order aberrations of an optical system composed of several components.
