The content of this book is multidisciplinary by nature. It uses mathematical tools from the theories of probability and stochastic processes, partial differential equations, and asymptotic analysis, combined with the physics of wave propagation and modeling of time reversal experiments. It is addressed to a wide audience of graduate students and researchers interested in the intriguing phenomena related to waves propagating in random media. At the end of each chapter there is a section of notes where the authors give references and additional comments on the various results presented in the chapter.

Review:

"An up-to-date monograph written by highly regarded experts that presents in a modern way the generalities of the physics of randomly layered media and covers a broad range of applications has long been eagerly anticipated by mathematicians, physicists, and engineers. ... I strongly recommend the book to graduate students and advanced researchers ... . this is an excellent book which will be interesting, informative, and enjoyable for a wide circle of students, researchers, and engineers, demanding a place on their bookshelves." --Valentin Freilikher, Journal of Statistical Physics, Vol. 131, 2008

From the Back Cover:

Wave propagation in random media is an interdisciplinary field that has emerged from the need in physics and engineering to model and analyze wave energy transport in complex environments.

This book gives a systematic and self-contained presentation of wave propagation in randomly layered media using the asymptotic theory of ordinary differential equations with random coefficients.

The first half of the book gives a detailed treatment of wave reflection and transmission in one-dimensional random media, after introducing gradually the tools from partial differential equations and probability theory that are needed for the analysis. The second half of the book presents wave propagation in three-dimensional randomly layered media along with several applications, primarily involving time reversal. Many new results are presented here for the first time.

The book is addressed to students and researchers in applied mathematics that are interested in understanding how tools from stochastic analysis can be used to study some intriguing phenomena in wave propagation in random media. Parts of the book can be used for courses in which random media and related homogenization, averaging, and diffusion approximation methods are involved.
