Natural evolution is widely accepted as being the process underlying the design and optimization of the sensory functions of biological organisms. Using a genetic algorithm, this process is extended to the automatic optimization and design of optical systems, e.g. as used in astronomical telescopes. The results of this feasibility study indicate that various types of aberrations can be corrected quickly and simultaneously, even on small computers.
