Localization of Waves in Disordered Media

3:45 PM-5:45 PM
Room 246

The focus of this minisymposium is on disorder-induced localization of waves. The speakers will discuss the mathematics and physics of localization, unsolved problems, experimental observations, and applications in optics, seismology and other fields.

Organizers: John A. Scales and Erik S. Van Vleck
