When the paraxial wave equation is used to include diffraction in nonlinear opics problems, expansion of the fields in a series of Gauss-Laguerre or Gauss-Hermite functions results in nonlinear coupling coefficients which are integrals of products of Laguerre or Hermite polynomials. A recursive technique is described for the evaluation of these coupling integrals. The method is then applied to power-dependent Raman scattering in focused geometry, power-dependent Raman scattering in a ring resonator, and diffractive propagation in optical parametric amplifiers.
