# Gibbs and quantum discrete spaces

The Gibbs field is one of the central objects of modern probability theory, mathematical statistical physics, and Euclidean field theory. In this paper we introduce and study a natural generalization of this field to the case in which the background space (a lattice, a graph) on which the random field is defined is itself a random object. Moreover, this randomness is given neither a priori nor independent of the configuration; on the contrary, the space and the configuration on it depend on… Expand
