We analyze a representation of random wave phase in different bases: the orthogonal Karhunen–Loeve–Obukhov functions, Zernike polynomials, discrete Walsh functions, and Haar wavelets. Performance criteria of an adaptive optical system, which are used for determination of its potential efficiency, are represented in the paper, such as the phase compensation error and Strehl ratio.
