EPJB: Topical Issue on Advances in Quasi-Periodic and Non-Commensurate Systems

Non-commensurate and quasi-periodic systems are ubiquitous in solid-state physics such as misaligned van-der-Waals heterostructures or 2D Moiré lattices, optical lattices, quantum chaos and stochastic processes as well as bichromatically driven systems. Usually, the communities are relatively disjunct and separated from each other - nevertheless they are employing related techniques and may benefit from each other.

This Topical Issue is dedicated to combine these different branches of solid-state physics and to take advantage of synergy effects. It aims to collect original research articles, mini-reviews and pedagogical introductions that report recent advances in these areas of active research. There will be a regular referee process before acceptance of the manuscripts.

EPJB: Topical Issue on Recent Advances in the Theory of Disordered Systems

Disordered systems in condensed matter theory and in statistical physics occur in various contexts: electrons or phonons in solids with many impurities, spins on aperiodic or random lattices, molecules in structural glasses, and many more. In recent years much progress has been made in understanding collective phenomena emerging from the interplay of the interaction between many fast degrees of freedom and the disordered environment: many body localization and quantum phase transitions in disordered quantum many body systems, dynamical heterogeneities in spin glasses and glassy materials, phase transitions in random ferromagnets and random field systems and much more. This Topical Issue intends to collect original research articles, mini-reviews and pedagogical introductions that report recent advances in these areas of active research: the theory of disordered systems.
