A generalized multiple-prism dispersion theory is utilized to provide a numerical description of dispersive behaviour in prismatic arrays designed for laser pulse compression. In addition, there is an assessment of the effect on overall dispersion caused by either beam deviations or by geometrical perturbations of the prisms.
