Abstract : A description is given of some of the ONR-supported recent work at Belfer Graduate School of Science in the fields of the theory of the insulator-metal transition; experimental aspects of the insulator-metal transition; and, the nature of glasses or amorphous solids. This includes results of some detailed calculations using the formalism of quantum statistical mechanics, results of experiments on thin films of magnetite and related materials, and studies of the relaxation processes and viscous flow in glasses, including metallic glasses.
