Paper Abstract

Based on the common Hermite-Gaussian modes, a general class of orthonormal Hermite-Gaussian-type modes is introduced. Such modes can most easily be defined by means of their generating function. A propagation law for the generating function is formulated, when these modes propagate through first-order optical systems.
