This activity will actively discuss and work on recent advances in the physics of many-body localization in all its quantum and classical facets. In particular potential regimes of nonergodic metallic phases will be critically explored in the light of such further concepts as Kolmogorov-Arnold-Moser regime, Fermi-Pasta-Ulam paradox, Arnold web and diffusion, amongst others.
