Solution of ‘Solvable model of a spin glass’

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The Shernngton-Kirkpatrick model of a spin glass is solved by a mean field technique which is probably exact in the limit of infinite range interactions. At and above Tc the solution is identical to that obtained by Sherrington and Kirkpatrick (1975) using the n→0 replica method, but below Tc the new result exhibits several differences and remains physical down to T=0. © 1977, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
