COR-RAND is a Consolidator Grant ERC research project (2019), led by Antoine Gloria (Faculty of Sciences)

Portrait d'Antoine Gloria Waves and randomness

ULB is also a partner institution of the ERC Consolidator COR-RAND project led by Antoine Gloria. Professor at Sorbonne Université and affiliated at the mathematics department of the Faculty of Sciences at ULB, his main field of expertise is partial differential equations.  These equations allow one to model most physical phenomena, including wave propagation in heterogeneous, typically random, media.

‘Random media greatly perturb the propagation of waves’, as Antoine Gloria explains. This may trigger unwanted effects – like the trapping of seismic waves in a city – or sought for effects – like the trapping of sound waves by noise abatement walls. ‘These phenomena are well-understood from the physical point of view, but much less in mathematical terms. My goal is to understand the interplay between differential operators and randomness, in order to explain the rich variety of wave propagation modes.’
