In science:

If the disorder is weak, and the support of the probability distribution P (J ) of the exchanges is confined to a narrow enough region near the mean, then the system remains in the usual gapped, topologically ordered Haldane state.
Dynamics and transport in random quantum systems governed by strong-randomness fixed points
For stronger disorder, or when P (J ) has tails to large or small enough J , one has the ‘Gapless Haldane’ (GH) phase in which the system still has the topological order that characterizes the Haldane state, but becomes gapless due to Griffiths effects.
Dynamics and transport in random quantum systems governed by strong-randomness fixed points
As W is decreased, the system undergoes a quantum phase transition to the so-called Gapless Haldane (GH) phase; both the quantum critical point and the GH phase in the vicinity of it are still controlled by strong-disorder fixed points.
Dynamics and transport in random quantum systems governed by strong-randomness fixed points
In this case there are additional new problems, as for example, what happens to the Haldane gap of integer spins chains in the presence of disorder.
