Imaging in random media

I will present an overview of some recently developed methods for
imaging with array and distributed sensors when the environment between
the objects to be imaged and the sensors is complex and only partially
known to the imager. This brings in modeling and analysis in random
media, and the need for statistical algorithms that increase the
computational complexity of imaging, which is done by backpropagating
local correlations rather than traces (interferometry). I will
illustrate the theory with applications from non-destructive testing
and from other areas.
