As we can see in Figure 9 and Figure 10, the radiation losses degrade the quality of the refocusing.
Loss of Resolution for the Time Reversal of Waves in Random Underwater Acoustic Channels
We have seen that radiation losses degrade the quality of the refocused transverse profile as the propagation distance increases.
Loss of Resolution for the Time Reversal of Waves in Random Underwater Acoustic Channels
First, the amplitude of the refocused wave decays exponentially with the propagation distance (Section 3.6).
Loss of Resolution for the Time Reversal of Waves in Random Underwater Acoustic Channels
The transverse profile of the refocused wave is studied using the diffusive continuous model introduced in, with two reflecting boundary conditions at u = 0 (the top of the waveguide) and u = 1 (the bottom of the waveguide).

In particular, a particle initialised at m will refocus (arbitrarily close to perfectly) at N + 1 − m after sufficient time.

We study in this section the resolution of the refocusing of the waves at the source, in the high-frequency and low-SNR regime described in section 5.2.

This is when and where the refocusing occurs.
Paraxial coupling of propagating modes in three-dimensional waveguides with random boundaries
If the time reversal process is statistically stable, then we can estimate its refocusing resolution by studying the mean of (7.11).
Paraxial coupling of propagating modes in three-dimensional waveguides with random boundaries
We now show that the time reversal function is statistically stable, meaning that the refocusing of the wave at the original source location does not depend on the the realization of the random medium but only on its statistical distribution, and the point spread function is approximately equal to its expectation.
Paraxial coupling of propagating modes in three-dimensional waveguides with random boundaries
The results contained in appendix B (second case) also show that if |AX | < (cid:96), the variance of the point spread function is large, and therefore that time reversal refocusing may be unstable in this case.
Paraxial coupling of propagating modes in three-dimensional waveguides with random boundaries
Time reversal is a physical experiment, where the waves can be observed in the vicinity of the source, as they refocus.
