Paper Abstract

Computer based lens design optimization routines have evolved significantly over the nearly five decades of their existence. In this paper the more widely used techniques are examined including some discussion of their strengths and weaknesses. In addition, some popular alternative methods to the conventional techniques are explored highlighting the technical and economic reasons for their development and use.
