The one-dimensional (1D) tight-binding model with random nearest-neighbor hopping is known to have a singularity of the density of states and of the localization length at the band center. We study numerically the effects of random long-range (power-law) hopping with an ensemble average magnitude 〈|tij|〉∝|i−j|−σ in the 1D chain, while maintaining the particle-hole symmetry present in the nearest-neighbor model. We find, in agreement with results of real-space renormalization-group techniques applied to the random XY spin chain with power-law interactions, that there is a change of behavior when the power-law exponent σ becomes smaller than 2.
