The supersymmetric transfer matrix for linear chains with nondiagonal disorder

  • F. Constantinescu


A study is made of the supersymmetric transfer matrix of then-orbital linear chain with Gaussian nondiagonal and diagonal disorder in the matrix (Hubbard-Stratonovich) variables. This formalism is applied to the one-point Green's function. Invariant functions of supersymmetric matrices are discussed in Section 3.
