Abstract

This paper proposes using the Monte Carlo method to design optical systems with an indeterminate ray path. The main algorithms for direct stochastic ray tracing and programmed implementation of the given algorithms are considered. The work is illustrated with examples in which the scattered light is calculated in lens-based optical systems.
