Mathematics and Physics of Anderson Localization: 50 Years After

  • Publisher: Cambridge University
  • Total Episodes: 130

In his seminal paper Absence of diffusion in certain random lattices (1958) Philip W. Anderson discovered one of the most striking quantum interference phenomena: particle localization due to disorder. Cited in 1977 for the Nobel prize in physics, that paper was fundamental for many subsequent developments in condensed matter theory. In particular, in the last 25 years the phenomenon of localization proved to be crucial for the understanding of the Quantum Hall effect, mesoscopic fluctuations in small conductors as well as some aspects of quantum chaotic behaviour. Random Schrödinger operators are an area of very active research in mathematical physics and mathematics. Here the main effort is to clarify the nature of the underlying spectrum. In particular, it has been proved that in dimension one all states are localized, and in any dimension the random Schrödinger operator has dense point spectrum for large enough disorder. Some open mathematical problems of major importance include the long-time evolutions of a quantum particle in a weakly disordered medium and existence of absolutely continuous spectrum in three dimensions. The expected transition from localized (point spectrum) to extended eigenstates (absolutely continuous spectrum) will also be addressed. Read more at: http://www.newton.ac.uk/programmes/MPA/

Partial Differential Equations

  • Publisher: Giovanni Bellettini (Univ. of Roma Tor Vergata)
  • Total Episodes: 118

This course introduced the basic properties of separable Hilbert spaces, taking the space of sequences l^2 as the reference example. The properties of the Hilbert cube have been analyzed. The problem of the existence of a basis in an infinite dimensional vector (respectively Banach, and Hilbert) space, in particular the Hamel basis (respectively the Schauder basis and the Hilbert basis), was also discussed. The first basic theorems of linear functional analysis in Banach spaces, such as the Hahn-Banach theorem (analytical and geometric versions), the Banach-Steinhaus theorem, the open mapping theorem, the closed graph theorem and their corollaries, were all studied. An other argument discussed in the course was distribution theory: the space of smooth functions with compact support was introduced, together with the notions of convergence required to introduce a distribution. Various properties and operations on distribution were studied, such as localization, support and convolution. Next, the Fourier transform and its main properties were carefully studied : the Fourier transform in L^1, in the space of rapidly decreasing functions, in L^2 and on tempered distributions. Some properties of Sobolev space (possibly with real exponent) have been analyzed, using mainly the Fourier transform. Applications of the Fourier transform to linear partial differential equations of elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic type, have been illustrated in the final part of the course. Several examples and exercises, as well as some counterexamples, have been illustrated during the lectures. — NOTE: This course was recorded automatically in slots of one hour and processed without human intervention. Lectures are split between videos; their starting time may not coincide with the beginning of videos and intervals were not removed.
