Abstract
A numerical propagation algorithm is presented that applies to a particular class of partially coherent beams. The algorithm relies on the azimutal decomposition of the cross-spectral density (or mutual intensity) of the field, which reduces the usual four-dimensional propagation integral into a series of two-dimensional integrals that can be treated using fast Hankel transform techniques.
