ABCD matrix formalism in the time domain has been newly developed on the basis of laser beam and resonator analyses which were developed under a Gaussian paraxial approximation. We derive matrix elements for amplitude and frequency modulations, group velocity dispersion, optical bandpass filter dispersion, and lumped self-phase modulation under a parabolic approximation. Applications to AM, FM, and stretched-pulse laser mode-locking are described by using these time-domain matrices. An application to pulse transmission in a dispersion-allocated system is also described
