Abstract
Using small-angle parabolic approximation and Feynman path-integral technique we derive the exact solution for optical beam propagation in the low-order turbulence consisting of the optical wedges and lenses distributed along the propagation path. We present complete solutions for some specific distribution of lenses, and discuss limitations of LOT as a proxy model for propagation in turbulence.
