Abstract:

The multiple scattering effects of wave propagation in an isotropically scattering random distribution of discrete scatterers are considered. The integral equations for the coherent field and average intensity are solved using Fourier transform techniques. An influence function is obtained for the average intensity, which can be used as the Greens function for the solution of average intensity of any given source radiation. Explicit expressions are given for plane, spherical and beam waves showing the dependence on various wave and medium parameters. Curves demonstrating the general characteristics of the solutions are presented for different albedos the ratio of scattering to total cross sections. Author
