Various numerical methods used in the study of disordered solids are reviewed. These include direct diagonalisation of the Hamiltonian, the recursion method, the equation-of-motion method, simulation and scaling. Results for Anderson localisation are compared. The calculation of the static electrical conductivity is discussed and the question of the existence of a minimum metallic conductivity is examined in the light of various recent numerical results. © 1980.
