Abstract

We show that the field of the optically feasible luminal localized wave solutions of the scalar homogeneous wave equation can be modeled by means of Bessel–Gauss pulses. As the Bessel–Gauss pulses have a closed-form expression, this fact may be of great value in numerical simulations of various experimental situations.
