Wave in random media and applications
Olivier Pinaud Stanford Math Department

We will review some recent results related to wave propagation in random media and applications to imaging. We'll explain how some relevant physical scales influence the nature of the inverse problem and present different adapted techniques. In particular, we will focus on a regime in which the wave strongly interacts with the medium and present some related results of asymptotics of random PDEs, possibly non-linear.
Various numerical simulations confirming the theory will be shown.
