Abstract

After the work of John, Sompolinsky, and Stephen(1), the study of localization in classical systems has received renewed interest. Most calculations have been carried out using a Gaussian noise representation for the disorder. Kirkpatrick(2) was the first to study localization in the presence of finite-size inhomogeneities. A “pseudosphere” approximation was then used to obtain more explicit results for the localization of acoustical waves (AW) by a random array of hard spheres and of electromagnetic waves (EW) by a random array of conducting spheres.(3) Related models were analyzed for the case of AW in a two-component composite(4) and of vector EW.(5) It is our purpose to investigate how the nature of the inhomogeneities affects the localization processes.
