Paper Abstract

We demonstrate that quantum-mechanical (or optical) path integrals for both time-invariant and time-varying potentials corresponding to longitudinally invariant and longitudinally varying refractive index distributions can be evaluated by a new set of accurate propagation procedures based on expressions for the exponential of any number of noncommuting operators as the product of exponentials of the individual operators.
