Anderson localization for disordered quantum graphs 

Disorder is one of the central topics in modern science. In this talk, we will discuss a mathematical treatment of a particular disordered system modeling localization of quantum waves in random media. The model in question was introduced by P. W. Anderson in his Nobel prize winning work in physics which led to a rich mathematical theory of random Schrodinger operators.  We will show that the transport properties of several natural Hamiltonians on metric trees with random branching numbers are suppressed by disorder. This phenomenon is called Anderson localization.

Coffee to be served 30 minutes prior to the talk in the alcove outside of FO 2.406.
