Paper Abstract

This paper presents a tutorial survey of the utility of the "angular spectrum of plane waves" representation of wave fields for the theoretical analysis of optical fields. It compares the representation with those more commonly employed in optical theory and describes the types of theoretical problems that benefit most from its special features.
