Abstract
An extension of the solution for the propagation of modulated beams through homogeneous media in cylindrical coordinates which results in a wave function described by Bessel Beams is the basis for this analysis of modulated beams through non homogeneous media in cylindrical coordinates]. By solving the wave equation analytically, including functions that describe the non-homogeneity, and using computer algebra software such as MAPLE©, we formulate new kinds of beams defined by special functions such as Airy, Kummer,and Hypergeometric functions. We also present convergence issues around the axis of propagation and possible applications for these new beams in telecommunication systems.
