In this article, we describe the different methods to simulate Multi-Conjugate Adaptive Optics (MCAO) systems. First, analytical (error-budget type) and semi-analytical (Fourier) methods are described. We then describe the different modules required to make end-to-end (Monte Carlo) simulations of these systems. Finally, we present some of the computational challenges associated with the simulation of MCAO on Extremely Large Telescopes (ELTs). To cite this article: M. Le Louarn et al., C. R. Physique 6 (2005).

Dans cet article, nous décrivons les différentes méthodes pour simuler des systèmes dʼoptique adaptative (multi-conjuguée, MCAO). Tout dʼabord, nous présentons les méthodes analytiques (budgets dʼerreur) et semi-analytiques (Fourier). Nous décrivons ensuite les différents modules nécessaires au développement dʼune simulation complète (Monte Carlo) dʼun tel système. Enfin, nous aborderons les problèmes lié à la simulation de la MCAO sur les télescopes extrèmement grands (ELTs). Pour citer cet article : M. Le Louarn et al., C. R. Physique 6 (2005).
