The Fokker-Planck equation for ray dispersion in gyrotropic stratified media

By S.M. Golynski


The Hamilton equations of geometrical optics determine the rays of the relevant wave field in the short wavelength. We give a systematic derivation of the Fokker-Planck equation for the joint probability density of the position and unit direction vector of rays propagating in a gyrotropic stratified medium with random inhomogeneities. The results are a generalisation of previous work for the case of an isotropic medium
