This book provides an overview of recent discoveries in random beams and outlines possible uses of these beams in imaging, tomography, and smart illumination. The book presents the research that has changed the field from purely theoretical trends to applications that allow communications and remote sensing of random media for optical communications with LiDAR systems. It covers modification of poliarization properties beams, along with two of the most important applications of random beams: communications and LiDAR systems. It also covers all phenomena relating to transformation of random beams by optical systems and media. MATLAB simulation codes are included.
Introduction. Scalar random beams: theory. Electromagnetic random beams: theory. Simulations. Applications.
