Stochastic Ray Propagation in Stratified Random Lattices - Comparative Assessment of Two Mathematical Approaches
By
, Vol. 71, 159-171, 2007
Abstract
Abstract-In this paper, ray propagation in stratified semi-infinite percolation lattices consisting of a succession of uniform density layers is considered. Two different mathematical approaches for analytically evaluating the penetration depth are presented. In order to compare performances and to assess the range of validity of the two approaches, an exhaustive set of numerical Monte-Carlo-like experiments is presented.
