Relativistic aberration of optical phase space

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

When an optical imaging system is boosted to relativistic velocities, the directions of the incoming light rays converge toward the pole of motion and the images are amplified in that direction and suffer a global comatic aberration. Our analysis uses succinctly the Hamilton–Lie formulation of optics to find the invariants in optical phase space of all Lorentz transformations.
