Equations have been derived which describe the transport of the Wigner distribution function in homogeneous and inhomogeneous media. In a weakly inhomogeneous medium, the transport equation can be formulated in geometrical optical terms as follows: along a geometrical optical light ray, the Wigner distribution function has a constant value.
