Paper Abstract

A first order theory has been developed which describes properties of almost general optical systems. It predicts the shape of the image surface and the shape of a square when it is imaged onto a plane which is tangent to the first order image surface at the center of the field. The application of the theory to realistic design problems is discussed.
