Abstract

The Wigner distribution function is a convenient way to describe image transformations in optical systems: spatial shearing, spatial frequency shearing, circular rotation, hyperbolic rotation, etc. The hyperbolic rotation can be represented as scaling of the Wigner distribution function with a separate scale factor for each axis direction. It is shown that if an optical system with positive lenses provides circular rotation of the WDF in the phase plane, with negative lenses it will provide hyperbolic rotation of the WDF function in this phase plane.
