The content of this book is multidisciplinary by nature. It uses mathematical tools from the theories of probability and stochastic processes, partial differential equations, and asymptotic analysis, combined with the physics of wave propagation and modeling of time reversal experiments. It is addressed to a wide audience of graduate students and researchers interested in the intriguing phenomena related to waves propagating in random media. At the end of each chapter there is a section of notes where the authors give references and additional comments on the various results presented in the chapter.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"An up-to-date monograph written by highly regarded experts that presents in a modern way the generalities of the physics of randomly layered media and covers a broad range of applications has long been eagerly anticipated by mathematicians, physicists, and engineers. ... I strongly recommend the book to graduate students and advanced researchers ... . this is an excellent book which will be interesting, informative, and enjoyable for a wide circle of students, researchers, and engineers, demanding a place on their bookshelves." (Valentin Freilikher, Journal of Statistical Physics, Vol. 131, 2008)

"This excellent monograph ... provides a masterful presentation of wave propagation in one-dimensional (layered) random media. ... This book serve as an indispensable reference to any mathematician and scientist interested in the analysis of partial differential equations with random coefficients." (Guillaume Bal, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2009 a)

"This book focuses ... entirely on the case of classical, linear waves (e.g., acoustics) in randomly layered media. ... I recommend this book highly to anyone interested in wave propagation in random media, or just asymptotic methods for stochastic differential equations. ... this narrower focus provides necessary clarity to the mathematical presentation. ... this book does an admirable job of presenting mathematicians with the fundamental analytical tools needed to study this subject." (Arnold D. Kim, SIAM Review, Vol. 51 (3), 2009)
