Structures of intermediate complexity and quantum dynamics

Abstract: We discuss the spreading properties of quantum particles in structures of intermediate complexity. Examples of interest include quasicrystals. We carry out a complete analysis for the Fibonacci Hamiltonian, which is the most prominent object in the mathematics and physics literature on quasicrystals.

Refreshments will be served at 2:45 p.m. (MATX 1115, Math Lounge).
