We study, beyond the Gaussian approximation, the decay of the translational order correlation function for a d-dimensional scalar periodic elastic system in a disordered environment. We develop a method based on functional determinants, equivalent to summing an infinite set of diagrams. We obtain, in dimension , the even n-th cumulant of relative displacements as }^{\text{c}}\simeq {\cal A}_n \ln r$ ?> with , as well as the multifractal dimension xq of the exponential field . As a corollary, we…

A renormalizable field theory up to two loops for the quasistatic depinning of elastic manifolds in a disordered environment is constructed and it is shown how higher correlation functions of the displacement field can be computed.

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.
