Functional differential equations and lens design in geometrical optics

Abstract:

The subject of this thesis is lens design using a system of functional differential equations arising from Fermat's Principle in geometrical optics. The emphasis is primarily on existence, uniqueness, and analyticity, properties of solutions to these equations, but some asymptotic methods are developed for special cases. Three specific lens problems are considered in detail: the first is an axial lens having two pairs of foci on the optical axis, the second is an axial lens which focuses ...
