Abstract

We present a solution of the sixth-order coherence equation for radiation propagating in a two-dimensional random medium. We use the two-scale method developed previously. The solution is in the form of a fourfold integral. From the integral we find, as limiting cases, the solutions in the perturbation region and the saturation region.
