Waves in Random Media

ENG ME 723

Systematic development of wave phenomena in weakly inhomogeneous and moving media. Emphasis is on acoustic waves, with selected examples from other branches of wave physics. Both ray-tracing and full-wave methods are discussed. Introduction to the statistical description of random media and of turbulent media. Formulations for relating statistical properties of wave phenomena to the statistical properties of the medium.
