Paper Abstract

As part of an “Integrated Modeling Toolbox” described in Wilhelm, Koehler et al. 2002 (these proceedings) the optical modeling tool BeamWarrior has been developed. Its main purpose is the creation of optical models for integration into a dynamic control system simulation. Offering a versatile set of geometrical and wave optical propagation algorithms it can also be used for sophisticated static optical analysis. The article summarizes the functional features of the tool and describes its algorithms - both, from a theoretical and practical point of view.
