The calculation of the electronic properties of disordered systems is an extremely difficult one. Bloch’s theorem, central to the understanding of crystalline solids, is no longer applicable and so any analytical attack on the problem becomes a formidable task even for the most simple case. Our particular interests lie in understanding the transport properties of amorphous transition metals and these are far from simple examples of disordered systems.
