Paper Abstract

The wave equation of light beam propagation was written in the form of an axial-coordinate-dependent Schrodinger equation, and the expectation value of a dynamical variable and the ABCD law were discussed by use of quantum mechanics approach. With the in-depth study of this theory, it has extended from the ABCD system to the effective ABCD system etc. All of the works are introduced in detail to interest others in this theory.
