Exponential decay of averaged Green functions for random Schrödinger operators. A direct approach. (English) Zbl 0934.35036

Summary: Under suitable analyticity conditions on the probability distribution, we study the expectation of the Green function. We give precise results about domains of holomorphic extensions in energy and exponential decay. The key ingredient is the construction of a probability measure in the complex domain after contour deformation. This permits us to avoid the use of perturbation series. Compared to the method in [the authors, Supersymmetric measures and maximum principles in complex space-Exponential decay of Green’s functions], the variant here seems limited to the random Schrödinger equation, in which case however it permits to treat more general probability distributions.
