Paper Abstract

Scientific Calculations, founded in 1963, is a supplier of software-based design automation products, i.e., we write, market, and support computer programs. Our first series of products was and is for the design and analysis of optical systems. Our current offering is ACCOS V, an acronym for Automatic Correction of Centered Optical Systems version V. The restriction to centered optical systems was removed long ago. Through the sixties, the predecessors of ACCOS V were batch oriented codes. Work was begun on ACCOS V in 1970 with the goal of developing a general purpose interactive code. Work continues today.
