Giving to CREOL CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics

Tutorial on Laser Beam Propagation Through Random Media by Larry C. Andrews

Thursday, October 12, 2017 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM
CREOL Room 103

Biography: Dr. Larry Andrews is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at the University of Central Florida and an associate member of the Townes Laser Institute in the College of Optics/CREOL. Previously, he held a faculty position at Tri-State University and was a staff mathematician with the Magnavox Company, antisubmarine warfare (ASW) operation. He received a doctoral degree in in theoretical mechanics in 1970 from Michigan State University. Dr. Andrews has been an active researcher in optical wave propagation through random media for more than 30 years and is the author or co-author of twelve textbooks on topics of differential equations, boundary value problems, special functions, integral transforms, wave propagation through random media, and mathematical techniques for engineers. He is a Fellow of the SPIE and also author of three Field Guides on Atmospheric Optics and Special Functions. Along with wave propagation through random media, his research interests include special functions, random variables, atmospheric turbulence, and signal processing.
