Paper Abstract

The hydrodynamic description of light propagation through the randomly inhomogeneous medium is developed based on the analogy of the vortex phase dislocations with the potential circular flow of liquid caused by the isolated point vortexes. It is shown that the determining factor in forming of the wave fronts structure of optical speckle-fields is a spatial dynamics of the phase gradient rotor. The singular equations for description of the rotor are derived and methods to regularize these equations are proposed.
