The design of a large–aperture adaptive mirror which can be used as a main mirror of astronomical telescope to compensate for large–scale low–frequency phase distortions of the wavefront is proposed. The adaptive mirror is described, and methods and results of numerical investigation of response functions of controlling electrodes, thermal deformations of a reflecting surface, and frequency properties of the mirror are presented.
