Abstract

The theory of wave propagation in random media is generalized in a straightforward way to include the effects of self focusing. Simple solutions are obtained which show how the intensity fluctuations which are induced by random inhomogeneities grow catastrophically. These solutions can be used to obtain conditions on the homogeneity of the medium, and on the fluctuations in the incident beam, for elimination or reduction of catastrophic self focusing in the medium.
