High frequency waves propagating in highly oscillatory media are often modeled by radiative transfer equations that describes the propagation of the energy density of the waves. When the medium is statistically homogeneous, averaging effects occur in such a way that in the limit of vanishing wavelength, the wave energy density solves a deterministic radiative transfer equation. In this paper, we are interested in the remaining stochasticity of the energy density. More precisely, we wish to…

The Wigner transform of the wave field is used and it is shown that it becomes deterministic in the large diversity limit when integrated against test functions and also shows that the limit is deterministic when the support of the test functions tends to zero but is large compared to the correlation length.
