The low-temperature states of bosonic condensates exhibit fundamental quantum effects at the macroscopic scale such as supercurrents. The combined effects of interaction and disorder in these can have drastic consequences, leading to the Mott insulator and Bose-Anderson glass. The latter is thought to describe helium-4 in porous media, cold atoms in disordered optical potentials, isordered magnetic insulators, and thin...
