Abstract

We apply a new method for optical aberration derivation to anamorphic systems made from toroidal surfaces and obtain a complete set of primary aberration coefficients. This set is written in a form similar to the well-known Seidel aberrations for rotationally symmetrical optical systems and includes firstorder quantities only, thus it can be easily applied to anamorphic lens design practice. By tracing four nonskew paraxial marginal and chief rays, the 16 anamorphic primary aberration coefficients can be easily calculated.
