In 1961 Anderson conceived a theoretical model to describe what happens where an impurity atom is present in a metal now widely known and used as the Anderson model Also named for him is the phenomenon of Anderson localization, describing the migration of impurities within a crystal In the 1960s Anderson concentrated particularly on superconductivity and superfluidity, predicting the existence of resistance in superconductors and (with Pierre Morel) pointing out the nature of the possible superfluid states of3He.

In 1825 he had been able to deduce an empirical law of forces (Ampère's law) between two current-carrying elements, which showed an inverse-square law (the force decreases as the square of the distance between the two elements, and is proportional to the product of the two currents). By 1827 he was able to give a precise mathematical formulation of the law, and it was in this year that his most famous work Mémoirs sur la théorie mathématique des phénomènes electrodynamiques uniquement déducte de l'expérience (Notes on the Mathematical Theory of Electrodynamic Phenomena, Solely Deduced from Experiment) was published.

He was educated at the Vienna Polytechnic and at Heidelberg University, where he was a pupil of Robert Bunsen. In 1885 he made a major contribution to knowledge of the lanthanoid (rare-earth) elements. In 1840. Carl Mosander had isolated a new 'element' called didymium. Auer showed (1885) that this contained, on fractionation, green and rose-red portions. He named them praseodymia ('green twin') and neodymia ('new twin'). Auer was also one of the first to find some use for the rare-earth elements.
