The study of light propagation in diffusive media, or photon migration, is a recent and open field of physics and optics. A limited number of books deal with this issue and most of the support material should be found in the scientific literature, that is in journal and conference proceedings. Most applications fall within the biological, medical and clinical application of lasers and optics, therefore research and interest groups are to be found in these communities.
