Euclidean systems include poly- and monochromatic wide-angle optics, acoustics, and also infinite discrete data sets. We use a recently defined Wigner operator and (quasiprobability) distribution function to set up and study the phase-space evolution of these models, subject to differential and difference equations, respectively. Infinite data sets and two- dimensional monochromatic (Helmholtz) fields are thus shown by their Wigner function on a cylinder of (2 ) direction and location; the…

Position and momentum bases for the monochromatic Maxwell fish-eye and the sphere
In geometric optics the Maxwell fish-eye is a medium where light rays follow circles, while in scalar wave optics this medium can only ‘trap’ fields of certain discrete frequencies. In the
Wigner functions for Helmholtz wave fields
We investigate a general form of the Wigner function for wave fields that satisfy the Helmholtz equation in two-dimensional free space. The momentum moment of this Wigner function is shown to
Finite Hamiltonian systems on phase space
We construct and analyze a Hamiltonian system whose position coordinate takes values on the finite subset of contiguous integers Zj := {−j,−j+1, . . . , j}, with the purpose of applying the resulting
Linear transformations and aberrations in continuous and finite systems
In geometric optics there is a natural distinction between the paraxial and aberration regimes, which contain respectively the linear and nonlinear canonical transformations of position and momentum
Finite optical Hamiltonian systems
In this essay we finitely quantize the Hamiltonian system of geometric optics to a finite system that is also Hamiltonian, but where signals are described by complex N-vectors, which are subject to
Wigner function for SU(1, 1)
This work derives in a consistent way a Wigner distribution for SU(1,1), which appears as the expectation value of the displaced parity operator, which suggests a direct way to experimentally sample it.

The Kravchuk coherent states provided by the finite oscillator model are used to evince the nonlinear transformations that elliptic-profile waveguides produce on phase space by means of the SO(3) Wigner function.
Wigner distributions and quantum mechanics on Lie groups: The case of the regular representation
We consider the problem of setting up the Wigner distribution for states of a quantum system whose configuration space is a Lie group. The basic properties of Wigner distributions in the familiar
Discrete repulsive oscillator wavefunctions
For the study of infinite discrete systems on phase space, the three-dimensional Lorentz algebra and group, and , provide a discrete model of the repulsive oscillator. Its eigenfunctions are found in


Wigner distribution function for finite signals
We construct a bilinear form with the properties of the Wigner distribution function for a model of finite optics: the multimodal linear waveguide. This is a guide that can carry a finite number of
Elements of euclidean optics
Euclidean optics are models of the manifold of rays and wavefronts in terms of coset spaces of the Euclidean group. One realization of this construction is the geometric model of Hamilton's optical
Introduction to Fourier optics
The second edition of this respected text considerably expands the original and reflects the tremendous advances made in the discipline since 1968. All material has been thoroughly updated and
On the Quantum Correction for Thermodynamic Equilibrium
The behavior of any system at high enough temperatures approaches that of its classical counterpart. The probability of any configurational position is then proportional to exp—U/kT, with U the
