Nonimaging optics is based on the thermodynamic understanding of optical design. Using Stokes' law one can find the energy throughput represented by the flow line is also the line integral of its vector potential. A detailed examination reveals that nonimaging optics is closely related with equal vector potential lines. We explore the possibility to further extend this into a more fundamental understanding of what nonimaging optical design represents.
