We study a class of three-waveguide axially varying structures whose dynamics are described by the su(3) algebra. Their analytic propagator can be found based on the corresponding Lie group generators. In particular, we show that the field propagator corresponding to three-waveguide structures that have arbitrarily varying coupling coefficients and identical refractive indices is associated with the orbital angular momentum algebra. The conditions necessary to achieve perfect transmission from the first to the last waveguide element are obtained and particular cases are elucidated analytically.
