Abstract: We will discuss the question: for a random walk in a random environment, when should one expect a central limit theorem, i.e. that after appropriate scaling, the random walk converges to Brownian motion? The answer will turn out to involve the spectral theory of unbounded operators. All notions will be defined in the talk. Joint work with Balint Toth.
