Effectiveness of the subharmonic method in problems of computer simulation of laser beam propagation in a turbulent atmosphere

Abstract

The results of the analysis of the effectiveness of the subharmonic method for simulating large-scale turbulent inhomogeneities of the refractive index in problems of laser beam propagation in a turbulent atmosphere are presented in comparison with experimental data.
