The unusual electronic transport properties and magnetic properties of quasicrystals are described in terms of the electronic structure of these aperiodically ordered systems. Experimental results for thermopower and conductivity as well as the Hall coefficient are discussed. The electronic density of states is analyzed. Critical electronic states with a multifractal probability distribution are shown.
