. We study relations between quantum dynamics and spectral properties, concentrating on spectral decompositions which arise from decomposing measures with respect to dimensional Hausdorff measures. 1. Introduction Let H be a separable Hilbert space, H : H ! H a self adjoint operator, and / 2 H (with k/k = 1). The spectral measure ¯/ of / (and H ) is uniquely defined by [24]: h/ ; f(H)/i = Z oe(H) f(x) d¯/ (x) ; (1:1) for any measurable (Borel) function f . The time evolution of the state / , in the Schrodinger picture of quantum mechanics, is given by /(t) = e \GammaiHt / : (1:2) The relations between various properties of the spectral measure ¯/ (with an emphasis on "fractal" properties) and the nature of the time evolution have been the subject of several recent papers [7,13,1518,20,22,33,36,39]. Our purpose in this paper is twofold: First, we use a theory, due to Rogers and Taylor [28,29], of decomposing singular continuous measures with respect to Hausdorff measures to i...

We consider discrete onedimensional Schrodinger operators with quasiSturmian potentials. We present a new approach to the trace map dynamical system which is independent of the initial conditions and establish a characterization of the spectrum in terms of bounded trace map orbits. Using this, it is shown that the operators have purely singular continuous spectrum and their spectrum is a Cantor set of Lebesgue measure zero. We also exhibit a subclass having purely ffcontinuous spectrum. All these results hold uniformly on the hull generated by a given potential.

1. Introduction and main results. In this paper we investigate the relations between the rate of decay of solutions of Schrödinger equations, continuity properties of spectral measures of the corresponding operators, and dynamical properties of the corresponding quantum systems. The first main result of this paper shows that, in great generality, certain upper bounds on the rate of growth of L2 norms of generalized
Fractal dimensions and the phenomenon of intermittency in quantum dynamics

We exhibit an intermittency phenomenon in quantum dynamics. More precisely, we derive new lower bounds for the moments of order p associated to the state ψ(t) = e−it H ψ and averaged in time between zero and T. These lower bounds are expressed in terms of generalized fractal dimensions D ± () µψ 1/(1 + p/d) of the measure µψ (where d is the space dimension). This improves previous results obtained in terms of Hausdorff and Packing dimension. 1.

We develop a mathematical framework allowing to study anomalous transport in homogeneous solids. The main tools characterizing the anomalous transport properties are spectral and diffusion exponents associated to the covariant Hamiltonians describing these media. The diffusion exponents characterize the spectral measures entering in Kubo’s formula for the conductivity and hence lead to anomalies in Drude’s formula. We give several formulas allowing to calculate these exponents and treat, as an example, Wegner’s norbital model as well as the Anderson model in coherent potential approximation. 1

Given a positive probability Borel measure , we establish some basic properties of the associated functions (q) and of the generalized fractal dimensions D for q 2 R. We rst give the connections between the generalized fractal dimensions, the Renyi dimensions and the meanq dimensions when q > 0. We then use these relations to prove some regularity properties for (q); we also provide some estimates for these functions (in particular estimates on their behaviour at 1), as well as for the dimensions corresponding to convolution of two measures. We nally present some calculations for speci c examples. 1

We consider ergodic families of Schrödinger operators over base dynamics given by strictly ergodic subshifts on finite alphabets. It is expected that the majority of these operators have purely singular continuous spectrum supported on a Cantor set of zero Lebesgue measure. These properties have indeed been established for large classes of operators of this type over the course of the last twenty years. We review the mechanisms leading to these results and briefly discuss analogues for CMV matrices.

E 2 ! : : : obeying a gap condition of the type inffn \Gammaff (E n+1 \Gamma E n ); n = 1; 2; :::g ? 0 for a given ff ? 0, t 7! V (t) is 2ßperiodic and r times strongly continuously differentiable as a bounded operator on H, ! and fi are real parameters and the periodic boundary condition is imposed in time. We show, roughly, that provided r is large enough, fi small enough and ! nonresonant then the spectrum of K F is pure point. The method we use relies on a successive application of the adiabatic treatment due to Howland and the KAMtype iteration settled by Bellissard and extended by Combescure. Both tools are revisited, adjusted and at some points slightly simplified. 1 Introduction Spectral analysis of Floquet Hamiltonians or, equivalently, Floquet operators [7, 17] is known to be a tool to inve...
