# Maxentwdf — A computer program for the maximum entropy estimation of a wave distribution function

## Description

Title of program: MAXENTWDF Catalogue Id: AAFV_v1_0 Nature of problem A random electromagnetic field can be described by a Wave Distribution Function (WDF) that specifies how the wave energy density is distributed with respect to the angular frequency omega and to the wave normal direction K. Such a WDF is related to the values of the N auto and cross-power spectra of the field components by the set of integral equations: Si=integral x1-x2 integral y1-y2 ai(x,y) G(x,y) dx dy; i = 1,...N where G(x,y) is the WDF, defined as positive everywhere, ai(x,y) are known ker ...
