A double-Gaussian model and the Schmidt modes are found for the biphoton wavefunction characterizing spontaneous parametric down-conversion with the degenerate collinear phase-matching of type I and with a pulsed pump. The obtained results are valid for all durations of the pump pulses: short, long and intermediately long.
