Paper Abstract

The fourth-order spatial coherence state of wave-fields is described in the framework of the classical wave picture, by means on the four-order spatial coherence wavelets. This strategy suggests that the fourth-order spatial coherence state of light can be modelled in terms of three layers of point sources in order to increase the performance of numerical algorithms. The model is illustrated by applying it to the Hanbury-Brown & Twiss effect.
