Abstract:

A previously developed Nuovo Cimento, 12884, 1954 correlation theory of stationary random electromagnetic fields is extended to the case in which the fields interact with stationary random charges and currents. The basic field equations are deduced and are found to be second order partial differential equations. An analogue to the equation of continuity is derived and some illustrative examples are discussed. Wave equations, which are of the fourth order, are deduced for the electric and magnetic correlation tensors. The theory presented in this paper may have various applications for the theory of plasmas. Author
