Roger Maynard memorial workshop

Program :
Our colleague and friend Roger Maynard passed away in 2015. Roger was an exceptional person and an outstanding physicist. He initiated and continuously supported our national research group devoted to the multiple scattering of waves, created the Laboratoire de Physique et Modelisation des Milieux Condenses (LPMMC), and played a central role for the development of theoretical physics in Grenoble. Roger also held important responsibilities on the national and international levels. (...)
