The Simons Foundation has announced the funding of an $8M Collaboration on Localization of Waves directed by Math faculty Svitlana Mayboroda, with Doug Arnold and 8 other physicists and mathematicians in Europe and the US. as participants.  Building on recent theoretical breakthroughs, this interdisciplinary collaboration will bring together mathematical tools from harmonic analysis, partial differential equations and probability, with high performance computational simulations and state-of-the-art experimental investigations of ultra-cold atoms and semiconductors in order to better understand this astonishing and mysterious behavior of waves in complex, irregular or random media.
