Many-body localization and phase diagram of weakly interacting disordered bosons in one dimension

TYPECondensed Matter Seminar
Speaker:Igor Aleiner

Parent Event:Many body localization
Location:Lidow Nathan Rosen (300)
Abstract:Abstract of the series: The Anderson localization is a well established phenomenon for the non-interacting particles subjected to the disordered potential. It is usually interpreted as the impeding of the quantum diffusion in the geometrical (real) space. The generalization of the notion of the Anderson localization in the Fock (state) space and the properties of the many-body wave-functions and their relation  to the many-body metal-insulator transition will be reviewed. The general features  and ideas of the theory will be presented in the Colloquium while the specific fine details taking into account the various types of statistics will be presented in the seminars.
