Paper Abstract

The transformation of the vortex part of the orbital angular momentum of linearly polarized, partially coherent beams during their propagation through separable first-order optical systems is analyzed. We obtain that the evolution of the vortex part depends only upon the parameters ax, ay, bx, and by of the ray transformation matrix. Isotropic systems with the same ratio b/a produce the same change of the vortex part of the orbital angular momentum.
