Abstract

Exact results concerning spatiotemporal universal features of three-dimensional propagation-invariant solutions of the wave equation (X waves) are derived. In particular, relations connecting the pulse transverse extension to the longitudinal coordinate and the propagation velocity to the spatial field distribution are obtained for the whole class of X waves.
