Gaussian Optics

  • Antonio Romano
Part of the Modeling and Simulation in Science, Engineering and Technology book series (MSSET)


In this chapter we present the Gaussian analysis of an optical system S. In particular, we introduce all of the optical characteristics of S (pupils, focal points, nodal points, principal planes, etc.). All these data can be obtained using the notebook GlobalGaussianData.
