Statistical Properties of Speckle Patterns
The purpose of this chapter is to introduce the various basic statistical properties of speckle patterns. We will basically follow Goodman  with some additions concerning dynamic speckle behaviour. Two main functions, namely, the probability density functions (PDF) and correlation functions (CFs) will be introduced and used for the statistical description of a speckle pattern.
