### Description

The main idea behind this book is to present a rigorous derivation of the equations that govern light propagation in highly scattering media, with an emphasis on their applications in imaging in biology and medicine. The equations and formulas for diffuse light propagation are derived from the very beginning, and all the necessary analytical expressions needed to complete a complex imaging or characterization problem are presented step by step.

This book provides postgraduate and PhD students with the basic framework and sufficient knowledge in light transport and the related mathematical methods to solve most complex problems that may appear in biomedical applications involving multiple scattered light. All results presented are formal analytical derivations from the complete problem, presenting, in those cases which are relevant, approximations to these expressions.

### Reviews

*“This textbook is a valuable reference for anyone interested in the
field of light propagation in tissues and biomedical imaging applications. Elegantly
written, it nicely fills the gap between theory and practical issues. Highly
recommended to students or established researchers, who are eager for a basic
understanding of light transport models and their use in quantitative imaging
in biology and medicine.” *

*“The book concentrates on laying out the mathematical details step
by step rather than discussing many practical applications. It is thus most
suitable for physicist for engineers (or students in this field) familiar with
some basic mathematical notations. Studying the book requires no prior knowledge
about diffuse light imaging and thus can be particularly useful for researchers
entering this fascinating and booming field of research.” *
