THeoretical investigation of the distribution of light intensity close to the lens focus is discussed, the distribution itself being treated as a sum of unit vector plane waves. Each wave is characterized by a matrix coefficient, a wave vector, a vector of polarization, a matrix of polarization orientation and a Maxwell-Jones' vector. This approach offers to take easily into account polarization effects and aberrations of an optical system in image modeling. Calculations are based on fast Fourier transform.
