Disorder in a non-interacting quantum system can lead to Anderson localization where single-particle wave functions become localized in some region of space. Recently, the study of interaction effects in systems which do exhibit Anderson localization has attracted renewed interest. In my talk I will present recent theorerical progress in understanding localization in many-body systems. I will, in particular, discuss one-dimensional lattice models with binary disorder which can potentially be realized in cold atomic gases using two species of atoms. A purification scheme can be used to perform an exact binary disorder average making such models amenable to numerical studies directly in the thermodynamic limit.
