Paper Abstract

We explore the mathematical relationships between generalized functional designs and edge-ray, aplanatic, and simultaneous multiple surface (SMS) designs. We show that both edge-ray and dual-surface aplanatic designs are special cases of generalized functional designs. In addition, we show that dual-surface SMS designs are closely related to generalized functional designs, and that certain computational advantages accrue when the two design methods are combined. A number of examples are provided.
