Paper Abstract

We have developed a simple analytic method of predicting the performance of glancing-incidence mirrors from laboratory measurements of their surface profiles and, conversely, of specifying mirror quality in terms of practical performance requirements. We call it the five-factor formula. This paper outlines its derivation and properties.
