Hello. I've been mathematically constructing some dream lenses where internet DoF calculators aren't cutting it. I'm going two stops faster than F0.7 (F0.35) from a Super 8mm field of view. I want to know if these lenses could work mathematically.

Does anyone per chance know the algorithm to calculate depth of field?

There are some formulas at the bottom of the Wikipedia article:
