Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"The main objective of this monograph is to give a broad and systematic overview of the discipline of wave propagation in disordered media using as a framework the following four phenomena/concepts . . will be a valuable addition to university and research libraries and a useful tool for graduate students and researchers dealing with wave propagation in disordered media. I fully expect it to remain a standard reference and a standard graduate-level textbook for years to come. The polygraphic quality of the book is exemplary." (Michael I. Mishchenko, Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy & Radiative Transfer, Vol. 105, 2007)
