Paper Abstract

Over the years much time has been dedicated to improving lens optimization routines. Most of the work has been upon the damped least squares (DLS) method. In this paper a number of theoretical and practical enhancements are presented. Some are new, others have already been published but never transposed into commercial software. These enhancements combine to allow the user to make more informed choices at every stage of an optimization, and have now been incorporated into the widely used WinLens software package.
