Abstract
No actual optical object is absolutely random in the sense of the probability theory. Therefore, the fields resulting from such objects are not absolutely random but carry information on the degree of ordering in the object. Any optical phase object can be viewed as a continuous system which can generate both time- and space-time chaos. For a time-independent case, a notion of optical field dimension can be introduced by analogy with the time-dependent case. As a measure of such dimension, the correlation exponent can be used.
