High frequency waves propagating in highly oscillatory media are often modeled by radiative transfer equations that describes the propagation of the energy density of the waves. When the medium is statistically homogeneous, averaging effects occur in such a way that in the limit of vanishing wavelength, the wave energy density solves a deterministic radiative transfer equation. In this paper, we are interested in the remaining stochasticity of the energy density. More precisely, we wish to… 
On the stability of some imaging functionals
This work is devoted to the stability/resolution analysis of several imaging functionals in complex environments. We consider both linear functionals in the wavefield as well as quadratic functionals
Uncertainty Modeling and Propagation in Linear Kinetic Equations
This paper reviews recent work in two complementary aspects of uncertainty quantification of linear kinetic models. First, we review the modeling of uncertainties in linear kinetic equations as high


Single scattering estimates for the scintillation function of waves in random media
The energy density of high frequency waves propagating in highly oscillatory random media is well approximated by solutions of deterministic kinetic models. The scintillation function determines the
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
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
Parabolic and Gaussian White Noise Approximation for Wave Propagation in Random Media
The parabolic or forward scattering approximation has been used extensively in the study of wave propagation and the validity of this approximation is proved for stratified weakly fluctuating random media in the high-frequencies regime.
Coupled paraxial wave equations in random media in the white-noise regime
In this paper the reflection and transmission of waves by a three-dimensional random medium are studied in a white-noise and paraxial regime. The limit system derives from the acoustic wave equations
Self-Averaging from Lateral Diversity in the Itô-Schrödinger Equation
The Wigner transform of the wave field is used and it is shown that it becomes deterministic in the large diversity limit when integrated against test functions and also shows that the limit is deterministic when the support of the test functions tends to zero but is large compared to the correlation length.
Fractional precursors in random media
When a broadband pulse penetrates into a dissipative and dispersive medium, phase dispersion and frequency-dependent attenuation alter the pulse in a way that results in the appearance of a precursor
A random wave process
The parabolic or forward scattering approximation to the equation describing wave propagation in a random medium leads to a stochastic partial differential equation which has the form of a random
