Abstract The perturbative approach (PA) introduced by Alard provides analytic solutions for gravitational arcs by solving the lens equation linearized around the Einstein ring solution. This is a powerful method for lens inversion and simulations in which it can be used, in principle, for generic lens models. In this paper, we aim to quantify the domain of validity of this method for three quantities derived from the linearized mapping: caustics, critical curves and the deformation cross-section (i.e. the arc cross-section in the infinitesimal circular source approximation). We consider lens models with elliptical potentials, in particular the singular isothermal elliptic potential and pseudo-elliptical Navarro–Frenk–White models. We show that the PA is exact for this first model. For the second, we obtain constraints on the model parameter space (given by the potential ellipticity parameter ε and characteristic convergence κs) such that the PA is accurate for the aforementioned quantities. In this process, we obtain analytic expressions for several lensing functions, which are valid for the PA in general. The determination of this domain of validity could have significant implications for the use of the PA, but it still needs to be probed with extended sources.
