In this note, a Wegner estimate for random divergence-type operators that are monotone in the randomness is proven. The proof is based on a recently shown unique continuation estimate for the gradient and the ensuing eigenvalue liftings. The random model which is studied here contains quite general random perturbations, among others, some that have a non-linear dependence on the random parameters. 



Unique continuation for the gradient of eigenfunctions and Wegner estimates for random divergence-type operators

An eigenvalue lifting estimate is proved that allows us to prove a Wegner estimate for random divergence-type operators and gets rid of a restrictive covering condition that was essential in previous proofs of WeGner estimates for such models.

Lifshitz Tails for a Class of Schrödinger Operators with Random Breather-Type Potential

We derive bounds on the integrated density of states for a class of Schrödinger operators with a random potential. The potential depends on a sequence of random variables, not necessarily in a linear

Conditional Wegner Estimate for the Standard Random Breather Potential

We prove a conditional Wegner estimate for Schrödinger operators with random potentials of breather type. More precisely, we reduce the proof of the Wegner estimate to a scale free unique

On a Counterexample Concerning Unique Continuation for Elliptic Equations in Divergence Form

We construct a second order elliptic equation in divergence form inℝ3, with a nonzero solution which vanishes in a half-space.The coefficients are α-Hölder continuous of any order α< 1. This improves

Bounds on the Spectral Shift Function and the Density of States

We study spectra of Schrödinger operators on ℝd. First we consider a pair of operators which differ by a compactly supported potential, as well as the corresponding semigroups. We prove almost

Scale-Free Unique Continuation Estimates and Applications to Random Schrödinger Operators

We prove a unique continuation principle or uncertainty relation valid for Schrödinger operator eigenfunctions, or more generally solutions of a Schrödinger inequality, on cubes of side $${L \in

Scale-free unique continuation principle for spectral projectors, eigenvalue-lifting and Wegner estimates for random Schrödinger operators

We prove a scale-free, quantitative unique continuation principle for functions in the range of the spectral projector χ ( − ∞ , E ] ( H L ) χ(−∞, E](HL) of a Schrodinger operator H L HL on a cube of

Absence of diffusion in the Anderson tight binding model for large disorder or low energy

We prove that the Green's function of the Anderson tight binding Hamiltonian decays exponentially fast at long distances on ℤv, with probability 1. We must assume that either the disorder is large or

Localization of classical waves I: Acoustic waves

AbstractWe consider classical acoustic waves in a medium described by a position dependent mass density ϱ(x). We assume that ϱ(x) is a reandom perturbation of a periodic function ϱ0(x) and that the
