Fine condition but for revious owner's stamped name, overlaid with felt marker, to top and bottom edges. 240 pp. Privately owned and unmarked. The author's intention was to write about aberration theory as actually taught and used, which includes not only the one-year Master of Science coursework, but additional material necessary (systematic development of aberration theory as well as a brief sketch of optical tolerance theory suitable for optical designers, etc. ) to make the book self-contained and useful tool.Much material was omitted which the author thought obscured rather than clarified the principles of optical image formation. This included logarithmic raytracing methods, and matrix formulations of raytracing. (At the same time the author emphasized finite methods which use exact raytracing as a basis for calculating aberrations and aberrational conditions without any mathematical approximations. Chapters include Ideal Optical Images; Geometrical Optics; Gaussian Optics; Finite Raytracing;Optical Invariants; Monochromatic aberrations; Calculation of the Seidel aberrations; Finite aberration formulae; Chromatic abberation; Thin lens aberrations; Optical tolerances, followed by Appendices with summaries of the main formulae, and a glossary of symbols followed by an index.
