Integral equations for the first two statistical moments of the field in a high-density medium of strongly scattering particles
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 lowest-order terms of each equation include those of the earlier work which only incorporate two-particle correlations.
