Abstract
Numerical simulation on a computer is one of the main methods used for studying the possibilities of adaptive correction of turbulent distortions of imaging forming in the atmosphere. The problem of compensation for atmospheric distortions of a wave front has been studied sufficiently long. The first papers on this subject were published in the mid-1960's. At that time, however, the engineering base gives no way for designing the efficient devices for compensating for atmospheric distortions. In recent years much progress has been reached in developing wave front distortion meters and correctors and then fitting the optical facilities operating under atmospheric distortions with these devices. In this connection an increased interest of researchers is observed to the theoretical works concerning with selection of an optical design and configuration of the wave front corrections.
