We propose that the ratio of these quantities is also illuminating. We have shown that the distance at which the so-called “direct method” becomes more efficient than the so-called “spectral method” for simulations of Fresnel transforms may be written in terms of this space-bandwidth ratio. We have proposed generalizations of these algorithms for numerical simulations of general ABCD systems and derived expressions for the “transition space-bandwidth ratio” above which the generalization of the spectral method is the more efficient algorithm and below which the generalization of the direct method is preferable.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland
