Abstract : The Green's functions are calculated for the Rytov equation that governs the propagation of plane monochromatic waves in a random medium. The diverging as well as the converging wave solutions of the Green's functions are obtained for the two situations in which the Laplacian operator in the equation is either fully three-dimensional or only two-dimensional in the variables that describe the plane normal to the direction of wave propagation. The solutions found by Chernov and by Tatarski are compared with solutions that can be given in terms of the Green's functions thus obtained. (Author)
