This thesis contains a new approach to the paraxial and
third order design and theory of zoom lenses, especially those consisting
of thin elements. Equations describing the paraxial and
third order behaviour of zoom lenses are derived and are used to
design a series of three element zoom lenses.
In the paraxial theory the derivatives, with respect to the
axial separations, of the paraxial coefficients are required.
Optimization processes for the automatic design of lenses require...[Show more]
