D.1 Multiple-Prism Dispersion Series
In Chapter 5, the generalized multiple-prism dispersion equation, applicable to multiple-prism arrays of any geometry, configuration, or materials, is given as (Duarte, 2009)
For positive refraction only, this equation becomes (Duarte and Piper, 1982, 1983)
where the ± sign refers to either a positive (+) or compensating configuration (−).
In Chapter 5, Equation D.2 is expressed in a series format directly applicable to the geometry at hand. Duarte and Piper (1982) also provide further examples of simple special cases leading to explicit ...
