Kinetic Models for Imaging in Random Media
TLDR
This work quantifies the influence of small objects on (i) the energy density measured at an array of detectors and (ii) the correlation between the wave field measured in the absence of the object and theWave field measuredIn the presence of the objects.
Self-averaging of kinetic models for waves in random media
Kinetic equations are often appropriate to model the energy density of high frequency waves propagating in highly heterogeneous media. The limitations of the kinetic model are quantified by the
IMAGING USING TRANSPORT MODELS FOR WAVE–WAVE CORRELATIONS
We consider the imaging of objects buried in unknown heterogeneous media. The medium is probed by using classical (e.g. acoustic or electromagnetic) waves. When heterogeneities in the medium become
Inverse problems in random media: a kinetic approach
We consider the validity and accuracy of kinetic equations to model the propagation of high frequency waves in highly heterogeneous media. The kinetic models are used to infer the macroscopic

One-dimensional transport equation models for sound energy propagation in long spaces: simulations and experiments.
TLDR
The results suggest that the transport equation models are able to accurately model the sound field in a long space and are substantially less time consuming than the previous models.
Correlations of heterogeneous wave fields propagating in homogeneous media
The paper concerns the analysis of the correlations of wave fields propagating in heterogeneous media. We show that selected field-field correlations asymptotically propagate in non-scattering media,
Dynamics of Wave Scintillation in Random Media
This paper concerns the asymptotic structure of the scintillation function in the simplified setting of wave propagation modeled by an Itô–Schrödinger equation. We show that the size of the
Correlation of ambient noise signals in the radiative transport regime
The cross correlation of the wave signals emitted by ambient noise sources can be used to estimate the Green’s function of the wave equation in an inhomogeneous medium. In this paper we clarify the

TLDR
It is shown that wave energy is not stable, and instead scintillation is created by the wave dynamics, when the initial energy distribution is sufficiently singular.
