This note is an expanded version of the author's contribution to the Proceedings of the ICMP Santiago, 2015, and is based on a talk given by the second author at the same Congress. It concerns a research program devoted to the characterization of the absolutely continuous spectrum of a self-adjoint operator H in terms of the transport properties of a suitable class of open quantum systems canonically associated to H.

Ballistic Transport for Limit-Periodic Jacobi Matrices with Applications to Quantum Many-Body Problems

We study Jacobi matrices that are uniformly approximated by periodic operators. We show that if the rate of approximation is sufficiently rapid, then the associated quantum dynamics are ballistic in

Crystalline Conductance and Absolutely Continuous Spectrum of 1D Samples

We characterize the absolutely continuous spectrum of half-line one-dimensional Schrödinger operators in terms of the limiting behavior of the crystalline Landauer–Büttiker conductance of the

Conductance and Absolutely Continuous Spectrum of 1D Samples

We characterize the absolutely continuous spectrum of the one-dimensional Schrödinger operators $${h = -\Delta + v}$$h=-Δ+v acting on $${\ell^2(\mathbb{Z}_+)}$$ℓ2(Z+) in terms of the limiting

Two-dimensional Dirac operators with general $\delta$-shell interactions supported on a straight line

. In this paper the two-dimensional Dirac operator with a general hermitian δ -shell interaction supported on a straight line is introduced as a self-adjoint operator and its spectral properties are

Asymptotic property of current for a conduction model of Fermi particles on finite lattice

In this paper, we introduce a conduction model of Fermi particles on a finite sample, and investigate the asymptotic behavior of stationary current for large sample size. In our model a sample is

Bounded eigenfunctions and absolutely continuous spectra for one-dimensional Schrödinger operators

We provide a short proof of that case of the Gilbert-Pearson theorem that is most often used: That all eigenfunctions bounded implies purely a.c. spectrum. Two appendices illuminate Weidmann's result

On the Kotani-Last and Schrodinger conjectures

In the theory of ergodic one-dimensional Schrodinger operators, ac spectrum has been traditionally expected to be very rigid. Two key conjectures in this direction state, on one hand, that ac

This paper constructs an example of a weight function on the interval such that 0$ SRC=http://ej.iop.org/images/0025-5734/36/4/A07/tex_sm_1864_img3.gif/>, , whereas the corresponding sequence of

The Thouless Conjecture for a One-Dimensional Chain

Abstract : The Thouless conjecture relating energy level shifts as a function of boundary conditions to conductance is shown to be incorrect in detail in the one-dimensional chain, though

Szegő's Theorem and Its Descendants: Spectral Theory for L 2 Perturbations of Orthogonal Polynomials

This book presents a comprehensive overview of the sum rule approach to spectral analysis of orthogonal polynomials, which derives from Gabor Szego's classic 1915 theorem and its 1920 extension.

Kotani theory for one dimensional stochastic Jacobi matrices

We consider families of operators,Hω, on ℓ2 given by (Hωu)(n)=u(n+1)+u(n−1)+Vω(n)u(n), whereVω is a stationary bounded ergodic sequence. We prove analogs of Kotani's results, including that for a.e.

Orthogonal polynomials with exponentially decaying recursion coefficients

We review recent results on necessary and sufficient conditions for measures on R and ∂D to yield exponential decay of the recursion coefficients of the corresponding orthogonal polynomials. We

A general argument leading from the formula for currents through an open noninteracting mesoscopic system given by the theory of nonequilibrium steady states to the Landauer-Buttiker formula is
