Paper Abstract

As part of the integrated modeling effort on the Canadian Very Large Optical Telescope described in Roberts et al. an optical modeling toolbox has been developed for the prediction of the telescope's optical performance. The toolbox, which includes a linear optical model, is written in the Matlab environment with the raytracing performed by the commercial optical design program ZEMAX. This article describes the data structures, optical merit functions, and algorithms used within the optical toolbox.
