Spin glass theory is going through a stunning period of progress while finding exciting new applications in areas beyond theoretical physics, in particular in combinatorics and computer science. In particular, using replicas and breaking the symmetry among them has been useful in the computer science field of combinatorical optimization, in which researchers need to maximize or minimize a function of many variables subject to… ^ Tommaso Castellani, Andrea Cavagna (May 2005).

His best known contributions are the QCD evolution equations for parton densities, obtained with Guido Altarelli, known as the Altarelli-Parisi or Dglap equations, the exact solution of the Sherrington-Kirkpatrick model of spin glasses, the… Spin glass theory is going through a stunning period of progress while finding exciting new applications in areas beyond theoretical physics, in particular in combinatorics and computer science. Methods of statistical physics that have proven useful in the theory of spin glasses are the replica and cavity methods. Recently progress has been made in order to find a sound basis for these methods.

This book contains a detailed and self-contained presentation of the replica theory of infinite range spin glasses. The authors also explain recent theoretical It is also good reading for anyone who wants to know about these aspects of the spin glass problem, and why "replica symmetry breaking'' and "ultrametricity'' 2 May 2005 One particular spin-glass model is analyzed (the p-spin spherical model) by using three different approaches. Thermodynamics, covering pure In condensed matter physics, a spin glass is a model of a certain type of magnet. Magnetic Besides its relevance in condensed matter physics, spin glass theory has Mezard, Marc; Parisi, Giorgio; Virasoro, Miguel Angel (1987), Spin glass theory and beyond, Singapore: World Scientific, ISBN 978-9971-5-0115-0 .

Spin glasses represent also a large class of challenging problems for optimization algorithms where the task is to minimize energy of a given spin-glass instance (M¨ Spin glass theory is going through a stunning period of progress while finding exciting new applications in areas beyond theoretical physics, in particular in combinatorics and computer science.

In the mean field theory of spin glasses the system must cross barriers that correspond to (1987) Spin Glass Theory and Beyond (World Scientific, Singapore). 2 Fundamental concepts of the full mean-field theory of spin glasses. 6 1,,K, we must go beyond the leading orders in the parameters m and χ1. It is first the. Spin glass theory is closely related to the problem to determine properties of the Guerrajs idea for an upper bound for f ,Я,h- which goes beyond the annealed In classical physics, it basically started with spin glasses, and some offsprings was published in 1987 by World Scientific, see: "Spin glass theory and beyond" .
