Abstract
An equation connecting the phase vortex density (wave front dislocation density) and intensity distribution of a light beam is derived. On this base a new method for calculation of the statistical characteristics of dislocations in the turbulent atmosphere is proposed. In the case of the lognormal law distribution of intensity fluctuations an integral representation of average dislocation density in terms of the correlation functions of intensity logarithm in a beam cross section is obtained.
