Abstract

We revise the two-scale solution for a wave propagating in a random medium. Unlike previous versions, our solution is formulated in terms of convergent series independently of the scattering strength and gives a new exact correction term. A numerical example compared with another solution obtained by finite differences further shows the usefulness of the zero-order term as a practical solution.
