A formalism capable of handling the first step of hierarchical replica symmetry breaking (RSB) in finite-connectivity models is introduced. The emerging order parameter is claimed to be a probability distribution over the space of field distributions (or, equivalently magnetization distributions) inside the cluster of states. The approach is shown to… CONTINUE READING
