Paper Abstract

A method simplifying the common ray-tracing procedure is presented. In some specific cases, to perform numerical simulations of reflective optical system, not traces of all rays are necessary to simulate but only of few ones. Therefore, the presented method is extremely effective. Moreover, to simplify the equations, the specific mathematical formalism is used. Because only few simple equations are used only, the program code can be simple as well.
