%T Monte Carlo simulation and analysis in modern optical tolerancing [E-Book]
%U https://dx.doi.org/10.1117/3.2552933
%X This Spotlight offers a perspective on the role of Monte Carlo simulation in the analysis and tolerancing of optical systems. The book concisely explores two overarching questions: (1) What principles can we adopt from a variety of statistical methods - such as the analysis of variance (ANOVA), "root sum of squares" (RSS), and Monte Carlo simulation - to analyze variability in complex optical systems? (2) When we assign perturbations to component variables (such as tilts and radii of curvatures) subject to arbitrary probability distributions, are the resulting distributions of system parameters (such as EFL, RMS spot size, and MTF) necessarily normal? These questions address the problem of analyzing and managing variability in modern product development, where many functions integrate to produce a complete instrument. By discussing key concepts from optics, multivariable calculus, and statistics, and applying them to two practical examples in modern technology, this book highlights the role Monte Carlo simulations play in the tolerancing of optical systems that comprise many components of variation.
