Abstract: A modified form of Galerkin's method is formally applied to an equation involving a stochastic bounded linear operator. The result, in general, is a sequence of stochastic linear algebraic equations. In the case of a statistically homogeneous operator, however, it is possible to obtain a sequence of deterministic linear algebraic equations. The formalism is applied to determining the electric field in a dielectric with a statistically homogeneous random permittivity.
