To the authors’ knowledge, the relationship between the Rytov approximation and multiple scattering has rarely been discussed in most of the existing literature (Ref. 18 is an exception). However, from the discussion given in the present section, one may say that the Rytov solution describes some effects of multiple scattering.

See, for example, Chap. 17 of Ref. 16, and J. W. Goodman, Statistical Optics (Wiley, New York, 1985), Chap. 8. The treatment of the problem in these references is somewhat different from that in the present paper, mainly arising from the difference in the expression for the constitutive relation. However, both treatments are essentially the same as far as the condition regarding the depolarization effects is concerned.

Equation (33) may be easily obtained with the help of the characteristic function for the sequence of the Gaussian random variables. See, for example, A. Papoulis, Probability, Random Variables, and Stochastic Processes (McGraw-Hill, Singapore, 1984), Sec. 8.3.

The derivation of Eq. (45) is somewhat analogous to that of Eq. (43). See also Ref. 26.
