LETTER: The Anderson localization transition and eigenfunction multifractality in an ensemble of ultrametric random matrices
We demonstrate that by considering disordered single-particle Hamiltonians (or their random matrix versions) on ultrametric spaces one can generate an interesting class of models exhibiting an Anderson metal-insulator transition. We use the weak disorder virial expansion to determine the critical value of the parameters and to calculate the values of the multifractal exponents for inverse participation ratios. Direct numerical simulations agree favourably with the analytical predictions.
