Abstract
A model for diffusion of a quantum particle on a fluctuating lattice is considered. The Hamiltonian contains a coherent transfer matrix element between nearest neighbors and local energy fluctuations described by a dichotomic Markov process with coloured noise . The diffusion constant is calculated up to the fourth order in J. The result is compared to recent findings of Kitahara-Haus and Inaba. Anderson localization emerges in the limit of static fluctuations.
