A probability theoretical method is presented which enables the calculation of microlensing autocorrelation functions. Following an idea of Deguchi and Watson the Holtsmark–Markov method is employed to reduce this calculation to the numerical evaluation of twodimensional integrals. Comparing these results with autocorrelation functions calculated from measurements, consistent preliminary information about the individual lens system B1600+434 has already been obtained.
