50 Years of Anderson Localization by Elihu Abrahams

By Elihu Abrahams

In his groundbreaking paper Absence of diffusion in definite random lattices (1958) , Philip W Anderson originated, defined and built the actual rules underlying the phenomenon of the localization of quantum items as a result of sickness. Anderson's 1977 Nobel Prize quotation featured that paper, which was once primary for plenty of next advancements in condensed subject physics and technical purposes. After greater than a part century, the topic is still of primary value. specifically, within the final 25 years, the phenomenon of localization has proved to be the most important for the certainty of the quantum corridor influence, mesoscopic fluctuations in small conductors, a few features of quantum chaotic habit, and the localization and collective modes of electromagnetic and subject waves. This precise and worthy quantity celebrates the 5 a long time of the effect of Anderson localization on sleek physics. as well as the ancient standpoint on its foundation, the quantity offers a complete description of the experimental and theoretical facets of Anderson localization, including its program in a variety of parts, which come with disordered metals and the steel insulator transition, mesoscopic physics, classical structures and light-weight, strongly-correlated structures, and mathematical types.
