We present a full description of the nonergodic properties of wavefunctions on random graphs without boundary in the localized and critical regimes of the Anderson transition. We find that they are characterized by two localization lengths: the largest one describes localization along rare branches and diverges at the transition, while the second one describes localization along typical branches and remains finite at criticality. We show numerically that both quantities can be extracted from…

Many-body localization with synthetic gauge fields in disordered Hubbard chains
We analyze the localization properties of the disordered Hubbard model in the presence of a synthetic magnetic field. An analysis of level spacing ratios shows a clear transition from ergodic to

We study the Anderson transition in lattices with the connectivity of a random-regular graph. Our results indicate that fractal dimensions are continuous across the transition, but a discontinuity

Using the non-interacting Anderson tight-binding model on the Bethe lattice as a toy model for the many-body quantum dynamics, we propose a novel and transparent theoretical explanation of the

In this paper we propose a new perspective to analyze the many-body localization (MBL) transition when recast in terms of a single-particle tight-binding model in the space of many-body

Localization on Certain Graphs with Strongly Correlated Disorder.
It is found that there exists an Anderson transition, and indeed that localization is more robust in the sense that the critical disorder scales with graph connectivity K as sqrt[K], in marked contrast to KlnK in the uncorrelated case.
Minimal model of many-body localization
This is the first many body system for which an effective theory is derived and solved from first principles and the hope is that the novel analytical concepts developed in this study may become a stepping stone for the description of MBL in more complex systems.

Scaling Theory of the Anderson Transition in Random Graphs: Ergodicity and Universality.
The Anderson transition is studied on a generic model of random graphs with a tunable branching parameter 1<K<2, and a single transition separates a localized phase from an unusual delocalized phase that is ergodic at large scales but strongly nonergodic at smaller scales.

We show that non-interacting disordered electrons on a Bethe lattice display a new intermediate phase which is delocalized but non-ergodic, i.e. it is characterized by Poisson instead of GOE

For Anderson localization on the Cayley tree, we study the statistics of various observables as a function of the disorder strength W and the number N of generations. We first consider the Landauer
