Title: Localization in an interacting quasi-periodic fermionic chain

Abstract: We consider a many body fermionic system with an incommensurate external potential and a short range interaction in one dimension. We prove that, for certain densities and weak interactions, the zero temperature thermodynamical correlations are exponentially decaying for large distances, a property indicating persistence of localization in the interacting ground state. The analysis is based on Renormalization Group, and convergence of the renormalized expansion is achieved using fermionic cancellations and controlling the small divisor problem assuming a Diophantine condition for the frequency.

Keywords: Many body localization
