Paper Abstract

An algorithm is described which simulates atmospherically distorted wavefronts using a Zernike expansion of randomly weighted Karhunen-Loeve functions. Its performance are presented and analyzed thereafter. The program is then used to forecast resulting structure function and Strehl resolution for adaptive optics systems.
