Abstract : The research presents a calculation of the dispersion of the light intensity logarithm along the axis of a laser beam propagating in the atmosphere. General formulas, derived by Schmeltzer (1967) by a smooth perturbation technique to describe the propagation of a bounded monochromatic light beam, are used in the calculations. (Author)
