Data and scripts from: Nontrivial critical fixed point for replica-symmetry-breaking transitions


The transformation of the free-energy landscape from smooth to hierarchical is one of the richest features of mean-field disordered systems. A well-studied example is the de Almeida–Thouless transition for spin glasses in a magnetic field, and a similar phenomenon--the Gardner transition--has recently been predicted for structural glasses. The existence of these replica-symmetry-breaking phase transitions has, however, long been questioned below their upper critical dimension, d(u)=6. Here, we obtain evidence for the existence of these transitions in d
