Summer school "Waves and disorder"

The school will be focused on fundamental and applied aspects of wave propagation in disordered media. Its main distinctive feature will be the common view on the problems concerning different types of waves: light, sound, elastic and matter waves. The subject of wave propagation in disordered media is strongly interdisciplinary because in the presence of disorder all waves behave in a similar way. Widely known examples of this universality in behavior are diffusive propagation (Ohm’s law for conductors), universal conductance fluctuations (observed for electrons, light, and microwaves), Anderson localization (studied with electronic, optical, micro- and matter waves). The school will introduce in detail the theoretical concepts developed for the description of random wave propagation and then will illustrate their application in a variety of modern research domains spanning from laser physics and acoustics to biomedical optics. The community of physicists and engineers working in this field has realized the advantage of analyzing these problems in an interdisciplinary context and previous summer schools and conferences on this topic have demonstrated the success of such an approach.
