I will study eigenvalues and resonances of Schrodinger operators with potential varying wildly at a small scale epsilon. 

The variations are either deterministic or random. Using analytic Fredholm theory and estimates on oscillatory integrals, we will see that as epsilon goes to 0:

   - In the deterministic case, resonances/eigenvalues admit a full expansion in powers of epsilon, whose first terms are best described by an effective potential;

   - In the stochastic case, resonances/eigenvalues converge almost surely to those of the weak limit of the potential, with corrections satisfying a central limit theorem.
