Paper Abstract

This is a general development of an equation to describe the optimum cavity-type stationary solar energy collector in two-dimensional space, and then the expansion into three-dimensional space. The intent is to establish a starting point for those who wish to do research in the area of concentrating collected solar energy. The final design of the collector is dimensionally optimized to collect and concentrate as much energy from the sun that is physically and economically feasible.
