Abstract

The problem of controlling a single ray bundle with a single reflector is not generally solvable, but approximate solutions may often be found that are acceptable for applications. We introduce a new technique for finding such approximations and apply it to the design of a driver-side mirror for an automobile that has no blind spot and minimal distortion.
