Chapter 1 Frustration and Fluctuations in Systems with Quenched Disorder

Abstract

As Phil Anderson noted long ago, frustration can be generally defined by measuring the fluctuations in the coupling energy across a plane boundary between two large blocks of material. Since that time, a number of groups have studied the free energy fluctuations between (putative) distinct spin glass thermodynamic states. While upper bounds on such… (More)
