Domain of Validity of the Wiener-Hermite Functional Expansion Approach to Rough Surface Scattering
The validation of theoretical models for the wave scattering by rough surfaces is generally hampered by the lack of systematic, statistically well-characterized experimental data. To fulfill this need, it was suggested, originally by Garcia and Stoll, that Monte Carlo calculations could be profitably used instead. The purpose of the present communication is to use Monte Carlo calculations in order to validate the use of a model2,3 based on a modified expansion of the surface currents in a series of Wiener-Hermite functionals.
