Chebyshev Polynomial Expansions for Localization Length of Hermitian and Non-Hermitian Chains
Prof. Naomichi Hatano
The University of Tokyo, Japan

We find formulas of the Chebyshev-polynomial expansion of the energy dependence of the inverse localization length of Hermitian and non-Hermitian random chains. For Hermitian models, the expansion numerically produces the energy dependence as a function in one run of the algorithm. This is in strong contrast to the standard transfer-matrix method, which produces the inverse localization length for a fixed energy in each run. For non-Hermitian models, our algorithm also produces the inverse localization length for a fixed (complex) energy. We also find a formula of the Chebyshev-polynomial expansion of the density of states of non-Hermitian models. In all cases, we do not need to store the entire matrix in computer memory because the algorithm is based on the multiplication of the Hamiltonian matrix. Our algorithm for non-Hermitian models may be the only available one that enables us to find the density of states of models with interactions.
