Meeting Goals:
The 2023 Annual Meeting of the Simons Collaboration on Localization of Waves will bring together many of the world’s top mathematicians and physicists who are working to understand and exploit the localization of waves brought about by a disordered environment or complex geometry, and related wave behaviors.

The two-day meeting will feature presentations of recent advances in the mathematics, physics, and engineering applications of localization. These include new results on the geometric structure of random waves, spectral properties of disordered systems, experimental realization in systems of cold atoms and the engineering of disorder in semiconductor alloys to create new devices. The meeting will be a forum for all participants to engage in open discussion, exchange ideas and make new connections.
