A CAGO workshop was organized in the WCW building (next to RIACA) on
November 1718. Principal goal of the workshop was to investigate the
application of symbolic methods in geometrical optics. Results of the
project were presented, as well as results of research pursued
elsewhere. Most of the talks were about the interaction between theory
and practice. Quite a number of practical opticians attended the
workshop and a unique feature of it was that lively discussion took
place between experts in the practice of optical design and those more
interested in the mathematics and physics behind geometrical and
electron optics. The following researchers delivered a talk at the
workshop

Alex Dragt (University of Maryland), Lie Methods for Ray and Wave Optics

Etienne Forest (Lawrence Berkeley Lab), (Semi)symbolic
Manipulation in Ring Dynamics

Alexander Berdnikov (Institute of Analytical Instrumentation,Saint
Petersburg), `Constant time'aberrations versus
`Constant space'aberrations in Particle Optics

Symplectic Group
