On the integrated density of states of random Pauli Hamiltonians
The difference of the integrated densities of states (IDS) of the two components of a random Pauli Hamiltonian is shown to equal a constant given in terms of the expectation of the magnetic field. This formula is a random version of the Aharonov and Casher theory or that of the Atiyah and Singer index theorem. By this formula, the IDS is shown to jump at 0 if the expectation of the magnetic field is nonzero. For simple cases where the expectation of the magnetic field is zero, a lower estimate of the asymptotics of the IDS at 0 is given. This lower estimate shows that the IDS decays slower than known results for random Schrödinger operators whose infimum of the spectrum is 0. Moreover the strong-magnetic-field limit of the IDS is identified in a general setting.
