Conjugate focus


  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Conjugate focus (Opt) See under Focus.
    • Conjugate focus (Opt) the focus for rays which have a sensible divergence, as from a near object; -- so called because the positions of the object and its image are interchangeable.

In literature:

In other words, a focus is such a point that every line through it is perpendicular to its conjugate line.

In science:

Next we focus on the conjugate Fueter equations, especially in their form (39)–(40). A bicomplex function satisfying these equations is said to be conjugate regular.

Since the theory of random conjugate spaces has played an essential role in both the development of the theory of RN modules and their applications to conditional risk measures, our previous works have been focused on the theory of random conjugate spaces of RN modules [14, 15, 22–25].

Focusing at the central point the same frequency as in (a) and (b) via phase conjugation is displayed in (c) and (d) with 66 and 30 input points, respectively.

Remarkably, all these tra jectories are focused on the conjugate plane, and the rotation between the ob ject and its image is determined by the Larmor rotation of electrons with respect to the optical axis .
