WAVE Collaboration Annual Meeting 2022

The 2022 Simons Collaboration on Localization of Waves Annual Meeting will bring together world leading mathematicians and physicists whose work illuminates profound connections between disorder, geometric complexity, and the behavior of waves. The meeting will highlight how recent advances in mathematics yield important applications in physics involving wave localization. In particular, speakers will unveil groundbreaking results relating harmonic analysis and geometrical measure theory to cold atoms, nitride-based LEDs, and perovskites.

The meeting will be a place of exchange and discussion, and will also offer an opportunity to present new perspectives for the Localization of Waves project.
