In this paper an analytic expression governing the two-frequency mutual coherence function (MCF) for a Gaussian beam wave is developed for moderate to strong fluctuations. Using a temporal moments approach combined with this new expression for the MCF, expressions governing pulse statistics (delay and broadening) are developed. These general analytic results are compared with previous results in special cases.
