Paper Abstract

Optical system databases give the lens designers an opportunity of search of the prototypes. However choice of the most acceptable prototype requires carrying out the analysis of optical systems on special techniques, which are absent in the majority of optical design programs. In this connection in this paper we present some approaches to the investigation of the limiting possibilities of optical systems and the aberration analysis on the basis of global expansion of the wave aberration into series in term of Zernike's orthogonal polynomials. The numerical examples of use of offered techniques are presented.
