Based on the complex Gaussian expansion method for two dimensional rectangular hard-edged aperture, the analytical formulas for the generalized Stokes parameters of random electromagnetic beams through a paraxial ABCD optical system with rectangular hard-edged aperture are derived. With the help of the analytical formulae, the changes in statistical properties of rectangular hard-edge diffracted random electromagnetic beams, such as in the spectral density, in the spectral degree of coherence, in the polarization properties and so on, can be determined. Numerical examples of such changes are presented and discussed.
