The Repulsion Between Localization Centers in the Anderson Model

  • Fumihiko NakanoEmail author


In this note we show that, a simple combination of deep results in the theory of random Schrödinger operators yields a quantitative estimate of the fact that the localization centers become far apart, as corresponding energies are close together.
