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.
