We investigate contradirectional two-wave mixing with partially coherent waves in photorefractive crystals in the nondepleted pump regime. Equations governing the propagation of the self-coherence function and the mutual-coherence function of the signal wave and the pump wave are derived and simulated numerically. Numerical solutions of these equations are in excellent agreement with the experimental measurements.
