Using the relativistic symmetry of Maxwell's equations, the general structure of the electromagnetic field vectors in the paraxial approximation is obtained. The transverse character of the fields is fully accounted for. Transformation properties of the vectorial fields by the optical systems are derived. The treatment of the fields in terms of vector potentials is also given. The reviewer finds the results very interesting.
