Condensed Matter Theory Group Seminar
Localization of quantum particles and classical waves in disordered media (Part I)
Time: 4:30 pm
Place: 5310 Chamberlin
Speaker: Peter Wölfle, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany
Abstract: In the first lecture I introduce the notion of localization in a random medium. The phenomenon of weak localization is discussed. In the regime of strong localization the concept of the metal-insulator Anderson transition is introduced. The statistics of the conductance in 1d and quasi-1d systems is presented. Then the fundamental concepts of the theory of Anderson localization are presented: scaling theory, renormalization group theory, symmetry classes, fractal structure of wave functions.
