Abstract

Within the framework of the thermal-wave model, the quantumlike description of electron optics in terms of the propagator is given. First we briefly review the standard description in configuration space by analogy to quantum mechanics and in connection with recent investigations of charged-particle-beam transport that have used the concept of propagator. Then new insights are given by extension of the analysis of the particle-beam propagator to the phase-space context for which our system is described by the Wigner quasi-distribution function, as well as to the tomography context for which our system is described by the marginal distribution. Furthermore, the integrals of motion of a charged-particle beam and their relation to the propagator concept are discussed. Finally, the perturbation theory for a charged-particle-beam propagator is developed in the above-described two contexts and is applied to some simple optical devices.
