Abstract

The probability-density function governing the radial gradient of the aperture-integrated isotropic-speckle intensity is obtained by inverting the Abel integral equation between the above probability density and the known probability-density function of the corresponding spatial derivative. The final result is that the sought-for probability density is expressible in terms of modified Bessel functions of the second kind.
