# Glassy phase and freezing of log-correlated Gaussian potentials

@article{Madaule2013GlassyPA, title={Glassy phase and freezing of log-correlated Gaussian potentials}, author={Thomas Madaule and R{\'e}mi Rhodes and Vincent Vargas}, journal={Annals of Applied Probability}, year={2013}, volume={26}, pages={643-690} }

In this paper, we consider the Gibbs measure associated to a logarithmically correlated random potential (including two dimensional free fields) at low temperature. We prove that the energy landscape freezes and enters in the so-called glassy phase. The limiting Gibbs weights are integrated atomic random measures with random intensity expressed in terms of the critical Gaussian multiplicative chaos constructed in \cite{Rnew7,Rnew12}. This could be seen as a first rigorous step in the…

Freezing and low temperature entropy: The case of mean-field Gaussian model

- Computer ScienceJournal of Mathematical Physics
- 2020

It is proved, in the case of mean-field Gaussian spin glass model, that the maximum value of the inverse temperature beyond which the specific entropy of the Gibbs measure cannot be strictly positive is β * = 4 log 2.

Disordered statistical physics in low dimensions: extremes, glass transition, and localization

- Computer Science
- 2017

This thesis presents original results in two domains of disordered statistical physics: logarithmic correlated Random Energy Models (logREMs), and localization transitions in long-range random matrices, and argues that such localization transitions occur generically in the broadly distributed class.

Entropy and freezing in Gaussian models

A new definition of the freezing phenomenon is given in relation with the behavior of the entropy of Gibbs measures at low temperatures. In particular, for uncorrelated and log-correlated Gaussian…

Level Set Percolation in the Two-Dimensional Gaussian Free Field.

Using a loop-model mapping, it is shown that there is a nontrivial percolation transition and characterize the critical point, and the critical clusters are "logarithmic fractals," whose area scales with the linear size as A∼L^{2}/sqrt[lnL].

Applications to Dirac fermions in random magnetic fields at criticality reveal a peculiar "quasilocalized" regime (corresponding to the glass phase for the particle), where eigenfunctions are concentrated over a finite number of distant regions, and allow us to recover the multifractal spectrum in the delocalized regime.
