Diffraction Theory of Speckle Photography
The effects of diffraction are very important both for speckle formation during specklegram recording and for optical transformation of the wavefront during specklegram processing. Moreover, the statistical description of the intensity distribution in a speckle pattern is based of the diffraction analysis. So, in order to offer a brief introduction to speckle photography, we will start from the general principles of diffraction theory following mainly the notations of Born and Wolf  and Goodman .
