The scatter fields experimentally observable at the image plane of an optical receiver are modeled in a way that is consistent with the concepts and notations of both radiative transfer theory and the probability-computing receiver. Transient response and Doppler effect are considered. Single-particle scattering and its relationship to multiple scatter as treated by radiative transfer theory are reviewed. The statuses of experimental data and a variety of approximate methods for predicting the channel are also discussed.
