Abstract:

The author reports results on Furutsus contested theory of beam wave irradiance in turbulent air, on his attendance of the 17th General Assembly of URSI Warsaw, Poland, on a simple model for studying feature resolution, on the log-amplitude variance for plane and spherical waves, and on the angle-of- arrival power spectrum for an interferometer. Section 2 deals exhaustively with the spherical-wave extension of the irradiance scintillation theory.
