Let Z d+1 + = Z d Z+,letH 0 be the discrete Laplacian on the Hilbert space l 2 (Z d+1 + ) with a Dirichlet boundary condition, and let V be a potential supported on the boundary #Z d+1 + .We introduce the notions of surface states and surface spectrum of the operator H = H 0 + V and explore their properties. Our main result is that if the potential V is random and if the disorder is either large or small enough, then in dimension two H has no surface spectrum on #(H 0 ) with probability one. To prove this result we combine AizenmanMolchanov theory with techniques of scattering theory.
