Abstract

This paper discusses some general properties of Zernike polynomials, such as their Fourier transforms, integral representations, and derivatives. A Zernike representation of the Kolmogoroff spectrum of turbulence is given that provides a complete analytical description of the number of independent corrections required in a wave-front compensation system.
