@article{Wang2014EvidenceAA, title={Evidence against a mean-field description of short-range spin glasses revealed through thermal boundary conditions}, author={Wenlong Wang and Jonathan Machta and Helmut G. Katzgraber}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2014}, volume={90} }

A theoretical description of the low-temperature phase of short-range spin glasses has remained elusive for decades. In particular, it is unclear if theories that assert a single pair of pure states, or theories that are based infinitely many pure states-such as replica symmetry breaking-best describe realistic short-range systems. To resolve this controversy, the three-dimensional Edwards-Anderson Ising spin glass in thermal boundary conditions is studied numerically using population annealing… CONTINUE READING
