A more careful way to determine the change in angle is to average
s across the mirror by inte-
gration. The slope of the tangent along the x direction is

To first order we recover the approximate result, eq. (10). The mirror width 2
b only enters in at
second order and is therefore negligible. Solving for
and imposing a basic angle tolerance
,
we have that the temperature gradient constraint is
