The influence of quantum noise on the mean beat frequency Ft of a dithered-ring-laser gyroscope is considered. The corresponding Fokker-Planck equation is discussed and approximate analytical expressions and an exact expression for Ft in terms of infinite-matrix continued fractions are obtained. The two approaches are checked against each other.
