Abstract

We examine some computational problems related to the finishing of axisymmetric optical surfaces discussed in a paper by N. J. Brown [Opt. Eng. 17, 602–620 (1978)]. In the spirit of Brown’s paper we develop solution algorithms that are suitable for implementation on today’s personal computers. The use of the algorithms is illustrated by some sample calculations.
