Abstract:

An optical program, GaussSeidel, has been written for a Programmable Desk Calculator and Output Typewriter with as complete a first- and third-order analysis of centered optical systems including conic surfaces as desirable and reasonably possible. Its purpose is to prepare inputs for a complex lens design computer program, to evaluate outputs of such program to obtain a new and better input for the next computer run both in a case a time-sharing computer is not available, and to analyse a systems approach or results obtained from another source in a case a complex program is not available. The general principles, on which this program is based, and all necessary details are explained. Instructions for the use of the program, several sample cases, and the program listings are included.
