Summer School 

Waves and Particles in Random Media : Theory and Applications

Colorado State University, May 21-25, 2018


The school will offer an introduction to the field of waves and particles in random media in the broad sense, and will present the state-of-the-art and new directions of research. Waves and particles in random media is a domain of applied mathematics that involves a wide range of topics from various fields, for instance electromagnetics, analysis of partial differential equations, inverse problems, probability and stochastic equations. Beyond the wealth of mathematical techniques the topic involves, it also has a profound impact on many practical problems, for instance to medical and radar imaging, underwater acoustics, non-destructive testing and seismology.


Special presentations by Mark Ablowitz (CU Boulder, Applied Math), Margaret Cheney (CSU, Math), Randy Bartels (CSU, ECE).

Some sessions will be reserved for junior researchers to present their work.


Registration is free but mandatory. Send an email to before March 31st to sign up for the school.


A block of rooms has been reserved at the Best Western University Inn (walking distance to CSU). Reserve before May 1st to benefit from the summer school discounted rates ($90 per night including breakfast and free wifi). Write to for practical details.


Limited financial support is available for US-based Ph.D. and postdoctoral students. Send a CV at before March 31st for applying.

Funding is provided by the National Science Foundation (award #1757469), the College of Natural Sciences and the Department of Mathematics at Colorado State University
