Title: Criteria for admissible values of smooth aberrations for nondiffractive laser beams

We have derived analytical expressions, verified by the methods of numerical simulation, to evaluate the angular divergence of nondiffractive laser beams containing smooth aberrations, i.e., spherical defocusing, astigmatism and toroid. Using these expressions we have formulated the criteria for admissible values of smooth aberrations. (laser applications and other topics in quantum electronics)
