Paper Abstract

For most theories of wave propagation in a random medium the statistical quantity of primary interest is the two point correlation function associated with the index of refraction fluctuations. Here we show how this function may be determined in a statistically homogeneous and isotropic medium by measuring two and four point coherence functions after the radiation has propagated through the medium. We shall discuss both plane wave and finite beam initial conditions.
