Abstract

The distributions of the angular transmission coefficient and of the total transmission are calculated for multiple scattered waves. The calculation is based on a mapping to the known distribution of eigenvalues of the transmission matrix. The distributions depend on the profile of the incoming beam. The distribution function of the angular transmission has a stretched exponential decay. The total transmission distribution grows log normally whereas it decays exponentially.
