A Course in Lens Design is an instruction in the design of image-forming optical systems. It teaches how a satisfactory design can be obtained in a straightforward way. Moreover theory is limit to a minimum, and also used to support the practical design work. The book introduces geometrical optics, optical instruments and also the aberrations. It gives a description of the process of lens design and of the strategies used in this process. Half of its content is devote to the design of sixteen types of lenses, described in detail from beginning to end. This book is different from most other books on lens design because it stresses the importance of the initial phases of the design process: (paraxial) lay-out and (thin-lens) pre-design.
The argument for this change of accent is that in these phases much information can be obtain about the properties of the lens to be design. This information can be used in later phases of the design. This makes A Course in Lens Design a useful self-study book and a suitable basis for an introductory course in lens design. The mathematics mainly used is college algebra, in a few sections calculus is apply. The book could be used by students of engineering and technical physics and by engineers and scientists.
