Ordering, metastability and phase transitions in two-dimensional systems

- J. Kosterlitz, D. Thouless
- Physics
- 12 April 1973

A new definition of order called topological order is proposed for two-dimensional systems in which no long-range order of the conventional type exists. The possibility of a phase transition… Expand

Quantization of particle transport

- D. Thouless
- Physics
- 15 May 1983

The integrated particle current produced by a slow periodic variation of the potential of a Schr\"odinger equation is evaluated. It is shown that in a finite torus the integral of the current over a… Expand

Solution of 'Solvable model of a spin glass'

- D. Thouless, P. Anderson, R. G. Palmer
- Physics
- 1 March 1977

Abstract The Sherrmgton-Kirkpatrick model of a spin glass is solved by a mean field technique which is probably exact in the limit of infinite range interactions. At and above T c the solution is… Expand

Stability of the Sherrington-Kirkpatrick solution of a spin glass model

- J. Almeida, D. Thouless
- Physics
- 1 May 1978

The stationary point used by Sherrington and Kirkpatrick (1975) in their evaluation of the free energy of a spin glass by the method of steepest descent is examined carefully. It is found that,… Expand
