Abstract

Four examples are presented as verification of the validity and the usefulness of the equations derived earlier [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. 73, 1149– 1161 ( 1983)]. In each example, the aberration coefficients derived by algebraic methods are compared with those obtained from ray-trace data to a seventh-order aberration polynomial including ninth-order spherical aberration and distortion. In all cases good agreement is obtained between the two methods.
