Paper Abstract

Aberrations occur in all practical image forming systems. Some aberrations are the result of balancing during design, others are intrinsic to a particular image formation system and some are introduced as the result of the fabrication of an actual system. The type and form of these aberrations can be related to the constructional parameters of the system and can be calculated by the process of ray tracing or in some cases by analytic formulae.
