Paper Abstract

Upon propagation through quadratic graded index media, the Wigner distribution of the wavefunction of light rotates uniformly. As a consequence, a definition of fractional Fourier transforms based on rotating the functions Wigner distribution, and another based on propagation through graded index media, are equivalent.
