This chapter outlines physical origins and the development of rigorous mathematical methods of the Anderson localization theory, describing unusual propagation properties of quantum particles (as well as electromagnetic and acoustic waves) in disordered media. While the main scope of the book is restricted to the analysis of Anderson localization in a strongly disordered environment, Chap. 1 gives the reader a broad perspective and indicates directions for possible future research in the area of multi-particle localization theory.
