Karl Schwarzschild

Born: 1873, Frankfurt/Main, Germany

Died: 1916, Potsdam

In 1905 Schwarzschild formulated the complete third order aberration theory of 1- and 2-mirror telescopes. Furthermore, his formulation can be extended to any system and forms the basis of all modern reflecting telescope optics. He also developed a practical "Eikonal" theory giving the total aberration at a given field point. (Courtesy Martin Schwarzschild)
