Abstract : The report summarizes the objectives and results of research on propagation in random media conducted on Contract AF49(638)-1607. The principal results include the derivation of a validity condition for the Rytov approximation, the development of diagrammatic summation techniques for treating multiple scattering effects, and the development of nondiagrammatic techniques for deriving equations for the statistical moments of a wave propagating through a random medium.
