    Schematic explanation of the theoretical algorithm for X-ray mirage formation. (a) XRL radiation from the generator (seeded beam) propagated in empty space with complex amplitude ; (b) after propagation of the seeded beam through plasma of the amplifier, the complex amplitude of the distorted radiation consists of two terms: the complex amplitude and the complex amplitude of the mirage ; (c) formation of imaginary source by running the complex amplitude backward in empty space.
