Wave theory of imaging systems
The Lie-aIgebraic formulation of geometrical rays for imaging systems is transcribed to a form suitable for wave fields. The merits of a coherent-state wave field formulation are stressed along with a related path-integral representation suitable for a study of general aberrations.
