Abstract

A method of semiautomatic optical designing previously described has been developed further on a faster electronic digital computer. The new programs embody comprehensive controls of boundary conditions and are more fully automatic in operation. With these refinements and increased machine speed, it has become possible to explore the nature of the process of convergence to an optimum design.
