Building upon the one-step replica symmetry breaking formalism, duly understood and ramified, we show that the sequence of ordered extreme values of a general class of Euclidean-space logarithmically correlated random energy models (logREMs) behave in the thermodynamic limit as a randomly shifted decorated exponential Poisson point process. The distribution of the random shift is determined solely by the large-distance ("infra-red", IR) limit of the model, and is equal to the free energy…

Disordered statistical physics in low dimensions: extremes, glass transition, and localization
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.
Finite Size Corrections to the Parisi Overlap Function in the GREM
We investigate the effects of finite size corrections on the overlap probabilities in the Generalized Random Energy Model in two situations where replica symmetry is broken in the thermodynamic
Log-correlated random-energy models with extensive free-energy fluctuations: Pathologies caused by rare events as signatures of phase transitions.
It is argued that a seemingly nonphysical vanishing of the moment generating function for some values of parameters is related to the termination point transition (i.e., prefreezing), and the associated universal log corrections in the frozen phase are studied, both for logREMs and for the standard REM.
Extremes of log-correlated random fields and the Riemann zeta function, and some asymptotic results for various estimators in statistics
In this paper, we study a random field constructed from the two-dimensional Gaussian free field (GFF) by modifying the variance along the scales in the neighborhood of each point. The construction

Statistics of Extremes in Eigenvalue-Counting Staircases.
An extended Fisher-Hartwig conjecture supplemented with the freezing duality conjecture for log-correlated fields is used to obtain the cumulants of the distribution of that maximum for any β>0, and the results are expected to apply to the statistics of zeroes of the Riemann Zeta function.
