Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 1745)


In this paper, we show how the methods from [B-G] may be adapted to establish Anderson localization for quasi-periodic lattice Schrödinger operators corresponding to the band model ℤ × {1, ..., b}. Recall that ‘Anderson localization’ means pure point spectrum with exponentially decaying eigenfunctions. We also discuss the issue of dynamical localization.
