Paper Abstract

Since the off-axis conic surfaces in optics have played an important role in the construction of spectometers, concentrators, etc; and as a continuation of the work to find the surface that best fits an off-axis conic section, but that also can be constructed by conventional neans,we present a similar method to the one developed already for conics 1, but now for the toroidal surfaces. Also a comparison is made between the fittings of conics and toroids.
