Workshop "Random matrix theory for wave propagation in disordered media"

GDR MésoImage organized the workshop "Random matrix theory for wave propagation in disordered media". The workshop took place on Monday, December 12, 2011, in room 0D07 at the University Paris 7, site Chevaleret, 175 rue du Chevaleret, 75013 Paris.

Random matrix theory (RMT) is now an important subject with applications in many disciplines. In particular it has become an important tool to study quantum transport (phase-coherent conduction in mesoscopic systems) and wave propagation and imaging in random media (density of states for random Green’s matrix, singular value decomposition of the response matrix, etc.). This workshop aimed at gathering together mathematicians and physicists (theoreticians as well as experimentalists) to discuss current developments in RMT and its applications to these fields. The program included talks by the invited speakers and a few contributed talks.

Applications to participate, especially from junior researchers, are welcome. The participation is free but registration (by sending an e-mail to before November 25) is mandatory. Limited funding is available to support travel to and from the workshop and to cover local expenses during the workshop (please apply for funding by sending an e-mail to and before November 14).

- Alexandre Aubry (ESPCI, Paris) :
