63) j=1 since 1 N∼∞ N N δIj (ρ) = 0. 64) j=1 Now we turn the measurement to temporal distribution function by recording the output current of each CCD element continuously as a function of time t. This is equivalent to measure the intensity at each transverse coordinate ρ as a function of time t, I(ρ, t). We may find (1) each CCD element observes a well-defined Gaussian-like function of t − t0 , where t0 is the time coordinate of the maximum amplitude of the Gaussian-like function; and (2) each observed Gaussian-like function may differ from pulse to pulse in the neighborhood of I(ρ, t − t0 ) .

The pulse is a well-defined function of time t deterministically, but fluctuates from pulse to pulse in a nondeterministic manner. 3 Incoherent Sub-Sources and Coherent Fourier-Modes In the third simplified model, we assume each of the sub-sources emits independently with random relative phases. The Fourier-modes, however, are coherently excited at time t0j . 45, I(r, t) = aj (ω)e−iωt0j aj (ω )eiω t0j ei(ω−ω )τ dω dω j dν aj (ν)e−iνt0j eiντ = dν aj (ν )eiν t0j e−iν τ j F(τ −t0j ) aj (ν) = 2 . 4) j This result reflects explicitly the incoherent nature of the sub-sources and the coherent nature of the Fourier-modes.

41 by taking into account all possible realizations of the field in the superposition in terms of the complex amplitudes of the sub-sources and the Fourier-modes. 42) k where j and k label the jth and kth subfields within the superposition. The notation . . , which is adapted from statistics, denotes the mathematical expectation of the measurement. In the probability theory, the expectation value of a measurement equals the mean value of an ensemble measurement. It is not difficult to show the result of taking into account all possible realizations of the field is equivalent to an ensemble average.
