In this note we show how to arrive at the characteristic function for sum of N sinusoidal random variables under the conditions that a characteristic function for the individual component can be calculated. Using this formalism, it is possible to generalize Huygen's principle to random variables with each point of space to be an antenna with a gain pattern that is a superposition of random variables. Applications of this principle to several problems of interest is then briefly discussed.
