    As a specific offering towards his festschrift, we present a review the various properties of the excitation gas in superfluid He, which depend on Andreev reflection. This phenomenon dominates many of the properties of the normal fluid, especially at the lowest temperatures. We outline the ideas...

    : We investigate the long-time behavior of the Glauber dynamics for the random energy model below the critical temperature. We establish that for a suitably chosen timescale that diverges with the size of the system, one can prove that a natural autocorrelation function exhibits aging. Moreover,...
