Paper Abstract

A development of the Aldis equations is presented which permits exact computation of the contribution of each surface to the aberration of a ray at the focal plane. This development allows for the analysis of the general, rotationally symmetric asphere. A surface-by-surface analysis with the Aldis equations is compared with a third-order analysis.
