Co-author: Pedro Duarte (University of Lisbon)

The purpose of this talk is to review some recent results concerning Lyapunov exponents of higher dimensional, analytic cocycles over a multi-frequency torus translation. Such cocycles appear naturally in the study of band lattice quasi-periodic Schrodinger operators.

The main new feature of this work is allowing a cocycle depending on several variables to have singularities, which requires a careful analysis involving pluri-subharmonic and analytic functions of several variables.
