Abstract

We prove that the integrated density of states (IDS) of random Schrödinger operators with Anderson-type potentials on L2(Rd) for d1 is locally Hölder continuous at all energies with the same Hölder exponent 0<α1 as the conditional probability measure for the single-site random variable. As a special case, we prove that if the probability distribution is absolutely continuous with respect to Lebesgue measure with a bounded density, then the IDS is Lipschitz continuous at all energies. The single-site potential uL0(Rd) must be nonnegative and compactly supported. The unperturbed Hamiltonian must be periodic and satisfy a unique continuation principle (UCP). We also prove analogous continuity results for the IDS of random Anderson-type perturbations of the Landau Hamiltonian in two dimensions. All of these results follow from a new Wegner estimate for local random Hamiltonians with rather general probability measures
