Surface plasmon modes can be considered as the analogous to plane waves for homogeneous media. The extension to partially coherent surface plasmon beams is obtained by means of the incoherent superposition of the interference between surface plasmon modes whose profile is controlled associating a probability density function to the structural parameters implicit in their representation. We show computational simulations for cosine, Bessel, gaussian and dark hollow surface plasmon beams.
