# Single scattering estimates for the scintillation function of waves in random media

@article{Bal2010SingleSE, title={Single scattering estimates for the scintillation function of waves in random media}, author={Guillaume Bal and Ian Langmore and Olivier Pinaud}, journal={Journal of Mathematical Physics}, year={2010}, volume={51}, pages={022903} }

The energy density of high frequency waves propagating in highly oscillatory random media is well approximated by solutions of deterministic kinetic models. The scintillation function determines the statistical instability of the kinetic solution. This paper analyzes the single scattering term in the scintillation function. This is the term of the scintillation function that is linear in the power spectrum of the random fluctuations. We show that the structure of the scintillation function is…

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.
