Interpolation in Spin Glasses

Mathematical Physics & Probability

Speaker: Pierluigi Contucci, Bologna
Location: 693 Kerr
Start time: Tue, Nov 4 2003, 3:10PM

We will introduce an interpolation technique for spin glasses and show how to derive existence of the thermodynamic limit and properties of the surface pressure in the short range case. A Griffiths-like inequality of the I-th type will be proved and its pivotal role illustrated.
