Paper Abstract

A bursting bundle is a ray trace extension which defines incremental rays spread about a principle ray. The user can define the extent and the geometry of the spread. The burst can originate anywhere within the optical system. This provides the designer a new tool to help model unusual problems. A mathematical development is presented and some examples are discussed.
