Random Schrodinger Operators on Manifolds,
2003, v.9, Issue 4, 717-728
We consider a random family of Schrodinger operators on a cover $X$ of a compact Riemannian manifold $M = X/\Gamma$. We present several results on their spectral theory, in particular almost sure constancy of the spectral components and existence and non-randomness of an integrated density of states. We also sketch a groupoid based general framework which allows to treat basic features of random operators in different contexts in a unified way. Further topics of research are also discussed.
