The 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, or harnesses recent advances in mathematical analysis for important applications in physics involving wave localization. Building bridges from harmonic analysis to cold atoms or nitride-based LEDs, and from the geometric measure theory to transport in organic semiconductors, the meeting will enable discussions and cross-fertilization of ideas between scientists of a wide variety of backgrounds and will also offer an opportunity to present the collaboration’s most recent advances.
