Waves and Imaging in Random Media
(September 25-29, 2017)

Picture
Description

Wave propagation and imaging in complex media is an interdisciplinary area in applied mathematics, with roots in hyperbolic partial differential equations, probability theory, statistics, optimization, and numerical analysis. It has a wide range of applications, including not only radar and seismic reconstruction but also many others, such as laser beam propagation through clouds, light propagation through the atmosphere in astronomy, secure communications in scattering media, medical imaging, and nondestructive testing of materials. This workshop will present some of the latest advances in this area including wave propagation with time-dependent perturbations, source and reflector imaging in random media with sensor arrays, applications of random matrix theory for detection and imaging, imaging with cross correlation techniques, imaging with opportunistic or noise sources, applications of compressed sensing for imaging of sparse scenes, super-resolution in imaging, waves in novel media, e.g. metamaterials...
