Eigenvalue order statistics and mass concentration in the parabolic Anderson model (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We consider the random Schr\\"odinger operator on the lattice with i.i.d. potential, which is double-exponentially distributed. In a large box, we look at the lowest eigenvalues, together with the location of the centering of the corresponding eigenfunction, and derive a Poisson process limit law, after suitable rescaling and shifting, towards an explicit Poisson point process. This is a strong form of Anderson localization at the bottom of the spectrum. Since the potential is unbounded, also the eigenvalues are, and it turns out that the gaps between them are much larger than of inverse volume order. We explain an application to concentration properties of the corresponding Cauchy problem, the parabolic Anderson model. In fact, it will turn out that the total mass of the solution comes from just one island, asymptotically for large times. This is joint work in progress with Marek Biskup (Los Angeles and Budweis).
