Abstract

We present a modification of the beam-propagation algorithm that avoids computer-intensive processing of the sound carrier and instead deals with the slowly varying complex sound profile only. Our three test cases of Gaussian beams with different waists, strongly interacting with a two-dimensional sound column, show excellent agreement with the analytical treatment and with physical experiments performed in our laboratory.
