Abstract

Randomness occurs in many areas of modern physics. For example, in the past decade interest has turned increasingly towards the investigation of amorphous solids such as polymers and glasses. Furthermore randomness can occur in many forms. Thus, transport properties of spatially random systems (mixed crystals, alloys) are triggered by a distribution of microscopic (site-to-site) transfer rates (temporal disorder) and by different interactions with the surroundings (energetic disorder).
