Abstract: Transport of light in random systems • How to realize non-gaussian optical disorder: Levy glass • Superdiffusion of light, possibility to study optical Levy flights • Open questions: • Unknown properties of Levy flights (e.g. finite-size effects) • Weak localization (coherent backscattering), strong localization, speckle correlations, etc..
