Wave localization is ubiquitous in disordered media -- from amorphous materials, where soft-mode localization is closely related to materials failure, to semi-conductors, where Anderson localization leads to metal-insulator transition. Our main understanding, though, is based on discrete models. Here, we provide a continuum perspective on the wave localization in two-phase disordered elastic media by studying the scalar wave equation with heterogeneous modulus and/or density. At low frequencies…
