Paper Abstract

A simple model for dispersive optical systems is given. This method uses 4 by 4 matrices to model the system and is analogous to the ubiquitous ABCD matrices used for monochromatic optical systems. This model is exact up to quadratic phases and gives a simple prescription for the propagation of generalized gaussian beams.
