Abstract

The problem of designing a reflector to distribute the illumination of a nonisotropic point source on a plane aperture according to a pre-assigned pattern is analyzed. An integral equation and equivalent partial differential equation are derived. The form of the latter reveals this reflector-design problem to be a singular elliptic Monge—Ampère boundary-value problem.
