Title: "Many-Body Localization and Related Phenomena"
 
Abstract: Recent work on interacting disordered systems has focused on existence of many-body localization, defined by absence of diffusion and concomitant loss of ergodicity and thermodynamics in strongly excited extended systems.  Many-body localization  implies several deviations from conventional wisdom, including breakdown of eigenstate thermalization hypothesis, emergence of integrability, existence of forbidden phases and phase transitions. This talk consists of an overview of ideas, results and potentially relevant experiments.
