A text for a course in statistical optics. Reviews probability theory and the theory of random processes, then discusses first-order statistics of several kinds of light waves, and introduces concepts of time and space coherence. Deals with the propagation of coherence under various conditions, and extends this theory to coherence of order higher than 2 and illustrates the need for fourth-order coherence functions in a variety of optical problems. Introduces the theory of image formation with partially coherent light, and looks at the effects of random media, such as the Earth's atmosphere, on the quality of images formed by optical instruments. Of interest to students and professionals in optical and electrical engineering, and physics. Author information is not given. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
