    This book provides the skills and knowledge to develop practical lenses needed for the ever emerging variety of 21st-century applications. Continuing to focus on fundamental methods and procedures of lens design, this revision of a classic modernizes symbology and nomenclature, expands the aberration study to include the transverse and wave forms, enlarges the discussion of three-mirror tilted and decentered systems, and explores modulation transfer function and diffraction-based aberrations in the optimization process. As computer-based optical design is the rule today, this edition provides practical guidance on how to use a lens design program in general, without tying to a particular software package. This book is ideal as a textbook for advanced undergraduate or graduate course in lens design principles and as a self-learning tutorial and reference for the practitioner. * Many new lens design examples - ranging from the simple lenses to complex zoom lenses and mirror systems - give insight for both the newcomer and specialist to the field. * New chapter on techniques to select a starting lens configuration. * Two new chapters explain how to effectively select and use lens design software, and to carry out optimization techniques and performance analysis. * Problems are included at the end of chapters.
