Abstract:

The report details the numerical methods employed in a solution of the problem of high-power laser-beam propagation. A transformation of the partial differential equation for the light beam is used which differs from that of a previous study of the problem and which offers a versatility allowing a study of highly distorted beams to be made. A detailed description of the subroutines and their operation is given along with flow charts and FORTRAN listings. Modified author abstract
