Paper Abstract

The result of a lens optimization is critically dependent on the choice of the initial design, and this paper discusses ways in which starting points for optimization can be generated. Examples are given showing how, in some cases, an optimization program can obtain results that are very different from the initial design. In other cases, the choice of the initial design severely restricts the potentiality for optimization, and this is also discussed.
