Abstract

A new method for handling Zernike polynomials is presented. Owing to its efficiency, this method enables the use of Zernike polynomials as a basis for wave-front fitting in shearography systems. An excerpt of a C++ class is presented to show how the polynomials are calculated and represented in computer memory.
