This book contains the invited review papers and contributed papers presented at the University of Tokyo International Symposium on Anderson localization. It provides an overview of rapidly developing topics related to this area, including the metal-insulator transition in doped semiconductors and disordered metals, weak localization phenomena in two- and three-dimensional dirty metals and semiconductor space-charge layers, the quantum Hall effect, and localization in strong magnetic fields, together with the newer subjects of quasicrystals and mesoscopic systems. Quasicrystals are particularly interesting because their wave functions exhibit self-similarity and are marginally localized or delocalized, while in mesoscopic systems the conductance is no longer a self-averaged quantity and fluctuations play an essential role. This volume should be of use to anyone interested in the development of Anderson localization.
