Integral equations for the first two statistical moments of the field in a highdensity medium of strongly scattering particles
Abstract
Integral equations are derived for the coherent field and for the field autocorrelation in the very general case of electromagnetic wave propagation in a medium of densely packed nontenuous particle scatterers. All orders of Ntuple particle correlations are included. The resulting equations are a generalization of those derived recently by Tsolakis et al. (1985); the four lowestorder terms of each equation include those of the earlier work which only incorporate twoparticle correlations.
