The iterative reconstruction methods of the wavefront phase estimation from a set of discrete phase slope measurements have been considered. The values of the root-mean-square difference between the reconstructed and original wavefront have been received for Jacobi, Gauss-Seidel, Successive over-relaxation and Successive over-relaxation with Simpson Reconstructor methods. The method with the highest accuracy has been defined.
