Paper Abstract

In this review some results on spiral beam optics are considered. Spiral beams keep their intensity structure unchanged under propagation except its scale and rotation. Some theoretically calculated spiral beams and the ways of their experimental constructing are presented. A comparison between an example of nonrotating but structurally stable beam and a corresponding spiral beam is performed.
