Quenched bond dilution in two-dimensional Potts models

We report a numerical study of the bond-diluted two-dimensional Potts model using transfer-matrix calculations. For different numbers of states per spin, we show that the critical exponents at the

Indecomposability in field theory and applications to disordered systems and geometrical problems

Logarithmic Conformal Field Theories (LCFTs) are crucial for describing the critical behavior of a variety of physical systems. These include phase transitions in disordered non-interacting

Renormalization group flow in field theories with quenched disorder

In this paper we analyze the renormalization group (RG) flow of field theories with quenched disorder, in which the couplings vary randomly in space. We analyze both classical (Euclidean) disorder

Symmetry relations for multifractal spectra at random critical points

Random critical points are generically characterized by multifractal properties. In the field of Anderson localization, Mirlin et al (2006 Phys. Rev. Lett. 97 046803) have proposed that the

Coulomb gas partition function of a layered loop model

We consider a two-dimensional bi-layered loop model with a certain interlayer coupling and study its spectrum on a torus. Each layer consists of an O(n) model on a honeycomb lattice with periodic



Renormalization Group Solution for the Two-Dimensional Random Bond Potts Model with Broken Replica Symmetry

We find a new solution of the renormalization group for the Potts model with ferromagnetic random valued coupling constants. The solution exhibits universality and broken replica symmetry. It is

Critical properties of random Potts models

The critical properties of Potts models with random bonds are considered in two dimensions. A position-space renormalization-group procedure, based on the Migdal-Kadanoff method, is developed. While


We present a new method to study disordered systems in the low-temperature limit. The method uses the replicated Hamiltonian. It studies the saddle points of this Hamiltonian and shows how the

Replica symmetry breaking and the renormalization group theory of the weakly disordered ferromagnet

We study the critical properties of the weakly disordered p-component ferromagnet in terms of the renormalization group (RG) theory generalized to take into account the replica symmetry breaking

Replica Symmetry Breaking Instability in the 2D XY Model in a Random Field.

The susceptibility associated to infinitesimal RSB perturbation in the high-temperature phase is found to diverge as $\chi \propto (T-T_c)^{-\gamma}$ when $T \rightarrow T_c^{+}$.

It is argued on general grounds that bond randomness drastically alters multicritical phase diagrams via a random‐field mechanism, and the phase transitions of q‐state Potts models are second order for all q at dimensionality d≤2.

Rounding of first-order phase transitions in systems with quenched disorder.

For random-field models, this work rigorously proves uniqueness of the Gibbs state 2D Ising systems, and absence of continuous symmetry breaking in the Heisenberg model in d\ensuremath{\le}4, as predicted by Imry and Ma.
