Abstract

A relationship is established between two correlation coefficients (complex degrees of coherence) frequently used in the theory of partially coherent optical fields. One of them characterizes correlation in the space – time domain, the other in the space – frequency domain. Some relations obtained previously by ad hoc methods are shown to readily follow from our general formula.
