Victor Chulaevsky, “Multi-scale Analysis for Random Quantum Systems with Interaction” 
English | ISBN: 1461482259 | 2013 | 226 pages | PDF | 4 MB


The study of quantum disorder has generated considerable research activity in mathematics and physics over past 40 years. While single-particle models have been extensively studied at a rigorous mathematical level, little was known about systems of several interacting particles, let alone systems with positive spatial particle density. Creating a consistent theory of disorder in multi-particle quantum systems is an important and challenging problem that largely remains open. Multi-scale Analysis for Random Quantum Systems with Interaction presents the progress that had been recently achieved in this area. 

The main focus of the book is on a rigorous derivation of the multi-particle localization in a strong random external potential field. To make the presentation accessible to a wider audience, the authors restrict attention to a relatively simple tight-binding Anderson model on a cubic lattice Zd. 

This book includes the following cutting-edge features:

an introduction to the state-of-the-art single-particle localization theory 

an extensive discussion of relevant technical aspects of the localization theory

a thorough comparison of the multi-particle model with its single-particle counterpart 

a self-contained rigorous derivation of both spectral and dynamical localization in the multi-particle tight-binding Anderson model. 

Required mathematical background for the book includes a knowledge of functional calculus, spectral theory (essentially reduced to the case of finite matrices) and basic probability theory. This is an excellent text for a year-long graduate course or seminar in mathematical physics. It also can serve as a standard reference for specialists.
