Alain Comtet, Christophe Texier. Comment on “Effective Confining Potential of Quantum States in Disordered Media”. Physical Review Letters, American Physical Society, 2020, 124 (21), ⟨10.1103/PhysRevLett.124.219701⟩. ⟨hal-02881221⟩

We provide some analytical tests of the density of states estimation from the "localization landscape" approach of Ref. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 116, 056602 (2016)]. We consider two different solvable models for which we obtain the distribution of the landscape function and argue that the precise spectral singularities are not reproduced by the estimation of the landscape approach.
