This report on research on unstable resonator theory consists of three parts. Section I gives an overview of the work. In Section II a simple model is described for estimating the intensity distributions inside and emerging from lasers with high-Fresnel-number unstable resonators. In Section III modes of strip confocal unstable resonators containing spatially dependent gain are determined by means of a theory that is practical even at large Fresnel numbers.
