Abstract
In this paper we outline a general formulation of vector wave interferometry and then use this formulation to solve the optimization problem for interferometric coherence. We show that this problem can be reduced to a singular value decomposition of a non-symmetric complex matrix. We then develop a stochastic scattering model for an elevated forest canopy and use it to demonstrate application of the optimization scheme.
