# IMAGING USING TRANSPORT MODELS FOR WAVE–WAVE CORRELATIONS

@article{Bal2011IMAGINGUT, title={IMAGING USING TRANSPORT MODELS FOR WAVE–WAVE CORRELATIONS}, author={Guillaume Bal and Olivier Pinaud}, journal={Mathematical Models and Methods in Applied Sciences}, year={2011}, volume={21}, pages={1071-1093} }

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 too strong, inversion methodologies based on a microscopic description of wave propagation (e.g. a wave equation or Maxwell's equations) become strongly dependent on the unknown details of the heterogeneous medium. In some situations, it is preferable to use a macroscopic model for a quantity that is…
