We consider the random Schrodinger equation as it arises in the paraxial regime for wave propagation in random media. In the white noise limit it becomes the Ito–Schrodinger stochastic partial differential equation which we analyze here in the high frequency regime. We also consider the large lateral diversity limit where the typical width of the propagating beam is large compared to the correlation length of the random medium. We use the Wigner transform of the wave field and show that it… 
Fourth-Moment Analysis for Wave Propagation in the White-Noise Paraxial Regime
In this paper we consider the Itô–Schrödinger model for wave propagation in random media in the paraxial regime. We solve the equation for the fourth-order moment of the field in the regime where the

Paraxial Coupling of Electromagnetic Waves in Random Media

In this paper the white-noise paraxial wave model is considered. This model describes for instance the propagation of laser beams in the atmosphere in some typical scaling regimes. The closed-form

TLDR
It is shown that wave energy is not stable, and instead scintillation is created by the wave dynamics, when the initial energy distribution is sufficiently singular.
