The coherent-mode representation of arbitrary fluctuating optical fields is briefly reviewed and its application to the (non-lambertian) fields produced by the so-called gaussian Schell-model sources is discussed. The wavefields generated by lambertian sources are then analyzed within the framework of the coherent-mode representation. A simple and physically illustrative explanation is also obtained for the characteristic differences in the radiation properties of lambertian and spatially incoherent sources.
