The probability of signal fading at wave–front measurements due to scintillation is investigated. Numerical simulation of distributions of light intensity and phase fluctuations over the receiving aperture is presented. The calculational results are compared with the measurements under laboratory conditions. This numerical method can be used for the design of optical instruments, test of formulas, and to analyze the turbulence features.
