Abstract
This paper contains a treatment of paraxial wave optics which is expressed in terms of operators acting on vectors in an abstract space. The abstract vectors represent the electromagnetic field (in scalar approximation). The effects of propagation, reflection, and refraction, etc., are implemented by operators acting on the abstract field vectors. This leads to an operator algebraic formulation of paraxial wave optics.
