Title: Green’s function for nonimaging optics

Abstract: Nonimaging optics has application to designing solar energy concentrators and illumination engineering. In this talk, I will discuss how nonimaging optics can be described in the context of radiative transfer theory. The radiative transport equation reduces to a local transport equation, whose solution can be expressed in terms of a Green’s function. This new formalism may be useful for nonimaging designs.
