Paper Abstract

Science goals of telescopes are the fundament data of integrated modeling of astronomical telescopes. The differences between science goals are sources of telescope’s diversities. Solar telescopes are a very special type in astronomical telescopes. Chinese Giant Solar Telescope1 (CGST) is currently designed to be an 8-meter Ring Interferometric Telescope (RIT). Even compare with the other solar telescopes, CGST is also an unusual telescope due to its ring aperture and distinctive science goals. As the initial data of integrated modeling of CGST, the main science cases determine the basic structure of the telescope as well as its working mode. This paper will discuss the importance of the primary science case in integrated modeling of CGST.
