The probability density function and average contrast of the sum of n uncorrelated, partially developed speckle patterns have been theoretically investigated. A new form of the probability density function is given for the sum of n uncorrelated, partially developed speckle patterns under the assumption that the individual speckle fields to be added follow the circular statistics.
