Abstract
The Wigner function is a powerful tool for analyzing signals and synthesizing systems. For one dimensional function, the Wigner domain is a two dimensional function that has two axes: the space/time axis and the temporal/spatial frequency axis. Basic optical elements as spatial lenses, time lenses, free space propagation, dispersive delay line and gratings, are expressed as known simple operations over the Wigner domain. In this project we generalize the Wigner function definition for handling both space and time degrees of freedom, together with spatial and temporal frequencies. The generalized representation is useful for handling spatial-temporal systems such as temporal optical processors and super- resolution.
