Replacing integrating over the paths by ordinary integrating over the amplitudes of harmonics is proposed. As a result, a relation for the light field, which permits one to examine a wide class of problems for both the linear and nonlinear randomly inhomogeneous media, has been derived. Based on the proposed formula for the light field, a general relation for the spatio-temporal correlation function of arbitrary intensity fluctuations in a turbulent atmosphere has been derived.
