Algebraic approach to exactly soluble models for disordered systems (2004–2006)

In nanoscience there are a diverse range of systems in which disorder randomness or noise can play a significant role. Examples range from quantum wires to qubits to unzipping DNA. Even the simplest mathematical models for systems in the presence of disorder have a rich mathematical structure because they can be formulated in terms of Lie algrebras or diffusion on a curved surface. The complementary physical and mathematical expertise of the two Chief Investigators is crucial to this project.
