Paper Abstract

Taking advantage of the relationship of the M2 factor for Gaussian Schell model sources on terms of the global coherence parameter, derive for Santansiero et al. in Reference 1, we have shown on this paper the invariance of the M2 factor through its connection with geometrical Etendue of the pencil. This invariance have been shown for each independent coordinate.
