Imaging in complex media

In the emerging interdisciplinary science of imaging, in all its forms, sensor imaging in complex media has a special place. This is because of the mathematical challenges it poses as well as because of the many applications that depend on its success, from high-resolution medical imaging to seismic imaging, satellite imaging, etc. I will give a brief overview of the mathematical issues that come up and then introduce correlation based, or interferometric methods that are well suited to deal with complex media. I will give examples from seismic imaging where correlation based methods have had a huge impact recently.
