It should be remembered that cos^4 is not a 'Law', it is simply the result you get with a simple system with no aberration. Distortion is the biggest (but not the only) effect is determining non-cos^4 behavior. If cos^4 was a Law, you woudn't need to compute it based on solid geometry!

There is an excellent paper about this from Ronian Sew on LinkedIn.
