Vergence, Vision, and Geometric Optics
Keating, Michael P.
American Journal of Physics, 43, 9, 766-769, Sep 75
Provides a definition of vergence in terms of the curvature of the wave fronts, and gives examples to illustrate the advantages of this approach. The vergence treatment of geometrical optics provides both conceptual and algebraic advantages, particularly for the life science student, over the traditional object distance-image distance-focal length formalism.
