We extend proofs of non-Gibbsianness of decimated Gibbs measures at low temperatures to include long-range as well as vector-spin interactions. Our main tools consist in a two-dimensional use of “equivalence of boundary conditions” in the long-range case and an extension of global specifications for two-dimensional vector spins.

Decimations for One- and Two-dimensional Ising and Rotator Models II: Continuous versus Discrete Symmetries
We show how decimated Gibbs measures which have an unbroken continuous symmetry due to the Mermin-Wagner theorem, although their discrete equivalents have a phase transition, still can become


Gibbs Measures for Long-Range Ising Models
This review-type paper is based on a talk given at the conference Etats de la Recherche en Mecanique statistique, which took place at IHP in Paris (December 10-14, 2018). We revisit old results from
Entropic Repulsion and Lack of the g-Measure Property for Dyson Models
We consider Dyson models, Ising models with slow polynomial decay, at low temperature and show that its Gibbs measures deep in the phase transition region are not g-measures. The main ingredient in
Generic triviality of phase diagrams in spaces of long-range interactions
We show that interactions with multiple translation-invariant equilibrium states form a very “thin” set in spaces of long-range interactions of classical or quantum lattice systems. For example,
Non-translation invariant Gibbs states with coexisting phases III: Analyticity properties
We consider the spatially inhomogeneous Gibbs states for the three dimensional Ising and Widom-Rowlinson models. We prove the analyticity inz=exp(−2βJ) for small |z| of the spin correlation functions
Translation invariant Gibbs states for the Ising model
We prove that all the translation invariant Gibbs states of the Ising model are a linear combination of the pure phases for any . This implies that the average magnetization is continuous for .
Translation invariance and instability of phase coexistence in the two dimensional Ising system
It is shown that any Gibbs state of the two dimensional ferromagnetic Ising system is of the form λμ++(1−λ)μ−, with some λ∈ [0, 1]. This excludes the possibility of a locally stable phase coexistence
On the decay of correlations inSO(n)-symmetric ferromagnets
We prove that for low temperaturesT the spin-spin correlation function of the two-dimensional classicalSO(n)-symmetric Ising ferromagnet decays faster than |x|−constT providedn≧2. We also discuss a
Discrete approximations to vector spin models
Comparing two ways of discretizing continuous-spin models, and showing that except for very low temperatures, they behave similarly in two dimensions, also discusses some possibilities in higher dimensions.
Pathological behavior of renormalization-group maps at high fields and above the transition temeprature
We show that decimation transformations applied to high-q Potts models result in non-Gibbsian measures even for temperatures higher than the transition temperature. We also show that majority
