Elusive spin-glass phase in the random field Ising model.


We show rigorously that the spin-glass susceptibility in the random field Ising model is always bounded by the ferromagnetic susceptibility, and therefore that no spin-glass phase can be present at equilibrium out of the ferromagnetic critical line. When the magnetization is, however, fixed to values smaller than the equilibrium value, a spin-glass phase… (More)
