Paper Abstract

Glatzel's adaptive correction method apparently has been ignored by a large sector of the optical design community. Although based on the same principle as the Hopkins and Spencer method it has definitely better convergence. We incorporated Glatzel's method into our lens design program ten years ago and have consistently obtained satisfactory results, especially working with coefficients of orthogonal expansions of the aberration functions. Our computer program is operated interactively and differs to some extent from Glatzel's. Besides we have found that weights on parameter changes affect convergence significantly and routines for computation of weights were developed.
