Paper Abstract

A tutorial review of speckle is presented in three main parts: I. Observations of speckle, II. Diffraction theory of speckle, and III. Statistical theory of speckle. Many of the characteristics of speckle are seen to follow from rather simple physical arguments, now that the formal theory is well established. These main properties are summarized in a few simple formulas collected to facilitate approximate calculations.
