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
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.
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,
Wave field correlations in weakly mismatched random media
This paper concerns the derivation of a Fokker-Planck equation for the correlation of two high frequency wave fields propagating in two different random media. The mismatch between the random media
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

Kinetic Modeling of Multiple Scattering of Acoustic Waves in Randomly Heterogeneous Flows
We study the propagation of sound waves in a three-dimensional, infinite ambient flow with weak random fluctuations of the mean particle velocity and speed of sound. We more particularly address the

Wave transport along surfaces with random impedance
We study transport and diffusion of classical waves in two-dimensional disordered systems and in particular surface waves on a flat surface with randomly fluctuating impedance. We derive from first
Time Reversal in Changing Environments
This paper analyzes the refocusing properties of time-reversed acoustic waves that propagate in different media during the forward and backward propagation phases. We show how the refocused signal is
Probabilistic Theory of Transport Processes with Polarization
TLDR
A probabilistic representation for solutions of matrix-valued transport equations that account for polarization effects is derived and it is shown that the linear moments of the augmented transport equation with respect to the polarization variables are the solution of the matrix- valued transport equation.
Wave propagation and scattering in random media
TLDR
This IEEE Classic Reissue presents a unified introduction to the fundamental theories and applications of wave propagation and scattering in random media and is expressly designed for engineers and scientists who have an interest in optical, microwave, or acoustic wave propagate and scattering.
