Spin domains generate hierarchical ground state structure in J = +/-1 spin glasses.

Abstract

Unbiased samples of ground states were generated for the short-range Ising spin glass with J(ij) = +/-1, in three dimensions. Clustering the ground states revealed their hierarchical structure, which is explained by correlated spin domains, serving as cores for macroscopic zero energy "excitations."
