Abstract

The relationship between Maxwell’s equations and radiative-transport theory is studied for isotropic, nondispersive media that have arbitrary permittivity variations. It is demonstrated that the postulates of transport theory are consistent with Maxwell’s equations if the characteristics of the medium and the fields are such that the field-correlation tensor possesses certain properties and if the relative permittivity fluctuations in the medium are small in comparison with unity and have correlation lengths that satisfy appropriate requirements.
