Decoherence and Entropy in Complex Systems: Selected Lectures from DICE 2002

The contributions to this quantity are in accordance with chosen lectures from the 1st overseas workshop on decoherence, info, complexity and entropy (DICE). the purpose of this quantity is to mirror the growing to be significance ot universal options in the back of possible assorted fields corresponding to quantum mechanics, common relativity and statistical physics in a sort available to nonspecialist researchers.

20) It is also possible to show that the simultaneous distribution of two different bonds is decoupled to the product of distributions of single bonds when K = Kp : P2 (E1 , E2 ) = [ δ(E1 − Jij Si Sj )δ(E2 − Jkl Sk Sl ) ] = P (E1 )P (E2 ). 21) The same holds for distributions of more than two bonds. 3). The same is true for the Gaussian model. 22) j can be evaluated exactly if K = Kp by the same method (Nishimori 1986a). 23) j j which is manifestly gauge invariant. We can therefore evaluate it as before under the condition K = Kp .

6. There are no loops of bonds on the Bethe lattice, so that removal of any single site breaks the system into independent trees. us assume that this is also true for the SK model in which the correlations of different sites are weak. We then have ˜i − h ˜ i \i )2 (h 1 ˜ i \ Si ) = P (h . 83) yields ˜i mi = tanh β h \i . 85) ˜ i \i . 87) Jij mj − Vi mi . 88) \i or, in terms of mi , ˜i h \i = j We then have to evaluate the variance of the local field Vi = Jij Jik ( Sj Sk j,k \i − Sj \i Sk \i ). 90) as N → ∞ as well as the independence of Jij and Jik (j = k).

3 One possibility is that the singular part of the internal energy happens to vanish on the Nishimori line. g. the free energy, specific heat, and magnetic susceptibility) should have singularities at the crossing point. In almost all cases investigated so far, this transition point on the Nishimori line is a multicritical point where paramagnetic, ferromagnetic, and spin glass phases merge. Similar arguments apply to the Gaussian model. The Nishimori line in this case is J0 /J 2 = β, from the cancellation condition of numerator and denominator as in the previous subsection.
