Abstract

We consider the simple random walk on ℤd, d ≥ 3, evolving in a potential of the form β V, where (V(x))x∈ℤd are i.i.d. random variables taking values in [0, + ∞), and β > 0. When the potential is integrable, the asymptotic behaviours as β tends to 0 of the associated quenched and annealed Lyapunov exponents are known (and coincide). Here, we do not assume such integrability, and prove a sharp lower bound on the annealed Lyapunov exponent for small β. The result can be rephrased in terms of the decay of the averaged Green function of the Anderson Hamiltonian -Δ+ β V.
