Abstract

We formulate the problem of atmospheric compensation appearing in adaptive optics using the statistical-mechanical technology developed for information science. Our method uses the equilibrium statistical mechanics of the Q-Ising model corresponding to the maximizer of the posterior marginal estimate in the language of probabilistic information processing. Then, using the Monte Carlo simulation for a typical wave-front in adaptive optics clarifies that this method works well if we appropriately select the model of the true prior according to the sensitivity of measurement.
