Here we first summarize the most well-known optical operations on lightwave functions (i.e., the FRT, lens transformation, free-space propagation, and magnification), in a unified way, from the viewpoint of the one-parameter Abelian subgroups of the SAFT. Then we present a new operation, which is the Lorentz-type hyperbolic transformation in phase space and exhibits squeezing. We also show that the SAFT including these five operations can be generated from any two independent operations.||Funding Details:||Other funder||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Optical Society of America||Copyright (published version):||1994 Optical Society of America||Subject LCSH:||Fourier transformations
