Abstract

Given a symmetrical optical system incorporating inhomogeneous media, the expressions derived in this paper may be used to compute the derivatives of its paraxial coefficients with respect to each surface curvature, refractance, the thickness of media, and parameter specifying the index distributions. Some simple examples are considered.
