In the earlier work, Wolf has presented a new version of coherence theory that based on ensemble averages of modal components of field. Its use allows the coherence properties of partilly coherent light to be defined, understood and. studied with ease an a clear un&eratanding of physical processes involved. In this paper, we apply Wolf's coherence theory to represent the propagation of partially coherent beams through first-order optical system that ray matrix is...
