Paper Abstract

Several common impediments to successful lens design can be removed by application of new techniques. These involve using information that has long been calculated during the design process, but then discarded. Problems so addressed include the nuisance of discovering ray failures in the starting configuration, and that of tolerance desensitization, among others.
