A method for calculating the moments of the Wigner distribution function is proposed for laser beams having an arbitrary initial shape and propagating in a turbulent atmosphere; the spectrum of the correlation function of fluctuations of the refractive index and the profile of the structural characteristic are supposed to be arbitrary. The main relations for calculating the moments of the Wigner distribution and some parameters of the beam are presented.
