Ergodic Operators and Quantum Graphs: June 6-10, 2022

Organized by: David Damanik (Rice University), Jake Fillman (Texas State University), Selim Sukhtaiev (Auburn University) Ergodic Schrödinger operators have been studied heavily since the 1970s, as they include many examples of physical interest, such as disordered media, electrons in an external magnetic field, and quasicrystals. These operators enjoy many subtle connections to other areas of […]
