Full text of article: Russian language.

The paper provides a method of obtaining the design parameters of the initial optical system schemes, including diffraction structures made on even aspherical surfaces of the most general form. The effectiveness of the technique is demonstrated by examples of calculation of design of the lens of a combined device for writing and reading of digital discs of two formats and a micro-lens of a video camera.
