Abstract
The parameters of the transfer matrix describing a first- order optical system that is a cascade of k identical subsystems defined by the transfer matrix M, are determined from considering the subsystem's eigenfunctions. A condition for the cascade to be cyclic is derived. Particular examples of cyclic first-order optical systems are presented.
