Abstract

A computing scheme involving only 19 entries per surface is developed for the calculation <i>ab initio</i> of the coefficient of tertiary spherical aberration (and incidentally also the primary and secondary coefficients), and the contributions thereto by the individual (spherical) refracting surfaces of a centered system. A detailed example is provided.
