A misfit parameter is used to characterize the degree of frustration of ordered and disordered systems. It measures the increase of the ground-state energy due to frustration in comparison with that of a relevant reference state. The misfit parameter is calculated for various spin-glass models. It allows one to compare these models with each other. The extension of this concept to other combinatorial optimization problems with frustration, e.g. p-state Potts glasses, graph-partitioning problems…

Signed networks with positive and negative interaction are widely observed in the real systems. The negative links would induce frustration, then affect global properties of the system. Based on…

Droplet tilings for rapid exploration of spatially constrained many-body systems

- 2021

This system introduces an experimental system that enables the study of interacting many-body dynamics by exploiting the physics of multidroplet evaporation subject to two-dimensional spatial constraints and finds that a high-energy initial state of this system settles into frustrated, metastable states with relaxation on two timescales.

Genetic embedded matching approach to ground states in continuous-spin systems.

An efficient optimization heuristic for the much less discussed case of continuous spins is introduced, based on the combination of an embedding of Ising spins into the continuous rotators and an appropriate variant of a genetic algorithm.
