Paper Abstract

Consider a linear, lossless, passive optical system, with light flowing steadily in and out (fig. 1). There are constraints on the power flows which follol)w from (i) conservation of energy, (ii) reversibility, (iii) Liouville's theorem, conservation of gtendueor, more generally, unitarity.
