We study the transport properties of disordered electron systems that contain perfectly conducting channels. Two quantum network models that belong to different universality classes, unitary and symplectic, are simulated numerically. The perfectly conducting channel in the unitary class can be realized in zigzag graphene nano-ribbons and that in the(More)
We reconcile the phenomenon of mesoscopic conductance fluctuations with the single parameter scaling theory of the Anderson transition. We calculate three averages of the conductance distribution, exp(<lng>), <g>, and 1/<R>, where g is the conductance in units of e(2)/h and R = 1/g is the resistance, and demonstrate that these quantities obey single(More)
A review of recent progress in numerical studies of the Anderson transition in three dimensional systems is presented. From high precision calculations the critical exponent ν for the divergence of the localization length is estimated to be ν = 1.57 ± 0.02 for the orthogonal universality class, which is clearly distinguished from ν = 1.43 ± 0.03 for the(More)
We propose a generalization of multifractal analysis that is applicable to the critical regime of the Anderson localization-delocalization transition. The approach reveals that the behavior of the probability distribution of wave function amplitudes is sufficient to characterize the transition. In combination with finite-size scaling, this formalism permits(More)
The nature of the critical point of the Anderson transition in high magnetic fields is discussed with an emphasis on scale invariance and universality of the critical exponent. Special attention is paid to the distribution function of the conductance which becomes size and model independent at the critical point. The fractal properties of the wave function(More)
