Abstract The random-field Ising model (RFIM) provides a convenient framework to investigate complex energy landscapes. We use an out-of-equilibrium T = 0 single spin flip dynamics induced by varying the applied field, starting from locally stable configurations { s i } . If the configuration considered cannot be reached by a field history from saturation, it is possible to define a set of connected states which is defined as a basin. A whole hierarchy of basins is found when the field is… CONTINUE READING
