Paper Abstract

This paper is concerned with the development of Lens Design Techniques, specifically related to the use of personal computers. Lens Designers have been using computers for more than 20 years, although for most of this time it has only been feasible to use large mini-computers and mainframes, usually in a time-sharing mode. Since about 1980 there have been an increasing number of personal computers available, and these are now used very widely for Lens Design, as well as for many other applications.
