Paper Abstract

A simple model for a shape varying beam is evaluated with respect to the description of these beams by moments of second and fourth order. The influence of the beam shape parameterized by the fourth moments or the kurtosis on the power transmission of shape varying beams e.g. from unstable resonator lasers through step index fibers is studied in a simple approximation.
