Paper Abstract

On the basis of Abbe's diffraction theory of optical imaging, the appearance of a concave mirror with arbitrarily shaped small deviations in Foucault's knife-edge test and the new phase-contrast test is evaluated. The orthogonal "circle polynomials" are found and applied to the diffraction phenomena of circular mirrors.
