Abstract

We give a solution to the problem of light propagation in an inhomogeneous medium and in particular we show how to construct such an inhomogeneous medium so that it can produce quantumlike entangled functions. Using the correspondence between classical optics and quantum mechanics, we apply quantum optics methods to find the desired solution.
