Paper Abstract

The propagation problem for a partially coherent wave field in inhomogeneous random media is considered in this work. The influence of the refraction, the inhomogeneity of gain (absorbing) medium properties and refraction parameter fluctuations on target radiation characteristics are taken into consideration. On the basis of the solution of the equation for the second order coherence function the ray- tracing technique makes an algorithm of the account of turbulence and medium inhomogeneity for arbitrary initial coherence.
