Paper Abstract

We develop a stochastic approach for the description of wave propagation in random media and present a derivation of the time independent bilocal radiative transport equation which generalizes the Boltzmann transport equation by taking into account wave scattering effects by correlated scatterers. We obtain an expression for the extinction coefficient that includes effects of correlation.
