Summary

Waves propagating in random media are key to many areas of physics and engineering. These random media include gases, emulsions, powders, porous and polycrystalline materials, to name just a few. The theoretical tools to understand these waves can be applied to all linear waves, such as acoustics, light, and elastic. Yet, the community, and the tools used are quite disconnected. This workshop aims to bridge the gaps between mathematicians, physicists, and engineers, to better understand our connections, and to share recent advances.
