Although all of the different ways of describing aberrations (transverse, longitudinal, angular and wavefront) are mentioned, Smith focuses on transverse. Readers specifically interested in the wavefront formulation would be advised to refer to Welford's "Aberrations of Optical Systems" or Kidger's "Fundamental Optical Design".
