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 ideas underlying the phenomenon of the localization of quantum items as a result of disease. Anderson's 1977 Nobel Prize quotation featured that paper, which used to be basic for plenty of next advancements in condensed subject physics and technical functions. After greater than a part century, the topic is still of basic value. particularly, within the final 25 years, the phenomenon of localization has proved to be the most important for the certainty of the quantum corridor impact, mesoscopic fluctuations in small conductors, a few features of quantum chaotic habit, and the localization and collective modes of electromagnetic and topic waves.

This certain and important quantity celebrates the 5 many years of the impression of Anderson localization on smooth physics. as well as the historic point of view on its foundation, the quantity offers a complete description of the experimental and theoretical features of Anderson localization, including its software in numerous components, which come with disordered metals and the metal–insulator transition, mesoscopic physics, classical structures and lightweight, strongly-correlated structures, and mathematical models.

Readership: Graduate scholars and execs in condensed topic physics.
