This work examines several routes out of this dilemma, which lead to a unique renormalizable field theory at two-loop order, and clarifies the dependence of universal amplitudes on the boundary conditions at large scale.Expand

Applications to Dirac fermions in random magnetic fields at criticality reveal a peculiar "quasilocalized" regime (corresponding to the glass phase for the particle), where eigenfunctions are concentrated over a finite number of distant regions, and allow us to recover the multifractal spectrum in the delocalized regime.Expand

The field theories for pinned elastic systems at equilibrium and at depinning are studied and it is proved that two-loop renormalizability is proved and that random field attracts shorter range disorder.Expand

The renormalized force correlator Delta(micro) can be measured directly in numerics and experiments on the dynamics of elastic manifolds in the presence of pinning disorder, and the Middleton theorem is violated.Expand

This work studies static avalanches, or shocks, defined here as jumps between distinct global minima upon changing an external field, and shows how the full statistics of these jumps is encoded in the functional-renormalization-group fixed-point functions to obtain the size distribution P(S) ofstatic avalanches in an expansion in the internal dimension d of the interface.Expand

Sinai's model of diffusion in one dimension with random local bias is studied by a real space renormalization group, which yields exact results at long times and rare events corresponding to intermittent splitting of the thermal packet between separated wells which dominate some averaged observables are characterized in detail.Expand

We compute the distribution of the partition functions for a class of one-dimensional random energy models with logarithmically correlated random potential, above and at the glass transition… Expand

This work provides the first exact calculation of the height distribution at arbitrary time t of the continuum Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) growth equation in one dimension with flat initial conditions and obtain the generating function of the moments of the directed polymer partition sum as a Fredholm Pfaffian.Expand

We measure the center-of-mass fluctuations of the height of a contact line at depinning for two different systems: liquid hydrogen on a rough cesium substrate and isopropanol on a silicon wafer… Expand

Remarkably, exactly the same kernel K(b)(ff)(s,s') arises in the exact solution of the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation in 1+1 dimensions at finite time t, with the correspondence t=b(3).Expand
