Abstract

Relativistic formulation is presented of the second-order classical coherence theory of the electromagnetic field in the presence of random sources. It is shown that the dynamics of the second-order correlation tensors may be reduced to a simpler form in terms of certain tensor potentials. The gauge transformations of these tensor potentials are considered. In particular, two gauges of special interest are found, analogous to the Lorentz gauge and the radiation gauge in Maxwell’s electromagnetic theory. Some interesting relations and conservation laws are presented.
