     We present a study of the propagation of a novel beams family called Finite Airy-Gaussian Hermite-Gaussian beams (FAGHGB) passing through a paraxial (ABCD) optical system. The non-diffractive propagation of these beams is quantitatively analyzed owing to numerical simulations.


Keywords: Quasi-non-diffractive beam, Paraxial ABCD optical system, Finite Airy-Gaussian Hermite-Gaussian beams.
