Modeling of radiation transport is an important topic tightly coupled to many charged particle dynamics simulations for synchrotron light sources and FEL facilities. The radiation is determined by the electron beam and magnetic field source, and then passes through beamlines with focusing elements, apertures and monochromators, in which one may typically apply the paraxial approximation of small angular deviations from the optical axis. The radiation is then used in a wide range of spectroscopic experiments, or else may be recirculated back to the electron beam source, in the case of an FEL oscillator. The Wigner function representation of electromagnetic wavefronts has been described in the literature and allows a phase space description of the radiation, similar to that used in charged particle dynamics. It can encompass both fully and partially coherent cases, as well as polarization. Here, we describe the calculation of a beamline map that can be applied to the radiation Wigner function, reducing the computation time. We discuss the use of ray tracing and wave optics codes for the map computation and benchmarking. We construct a four crystal 1:1 imaging beamline that could be used for recirculation in an XFEL oscillator, and benchmark the map based results with SRW wavefront simulations.
