Abstract

The statistical properties of a wave emitted by an incoherent source with a sharp edge embedded in a turbulent medium are examined by use of the path-integral formulation for weak- and strong-scintillation conditions. The asymptotic analysis of the problem is discussed in detail, and the energy conservation principle for instantaneous field realization is derived from the path-integral formulation. It is shown that the wave from the model infinite incoherent source with a sharp edge reveals no amplitude fluctuations but only phase fluctuations for an arbitrary turbulence level.
