Paper Abstract

Propagation of a general incoherent Gaussian light beam in free space and through an optical system in paraxial approximation is considered. It is shown that such a beam is described using the same parameters as for a classical coherent Gaussian beam. Kogelnik's " A BCD" law is also true for a general Gaussian beam.
