Probability and Statistics Seminar——Long-range Ising model: a contour argument and the random field
报告人： João Maia (University of São Paulo)
地点：Room 1114, Sciences Building No. 1
In this talk, we present a notion of contour for long-range systems introduced by L. Affonso, R. Bissacot, E.O. Endo, and S. Handa. These new contours were inspired by the work of Frohlich-Spencer. With them, the authors presented a direct proof for the phase transition for ferromagnetic long-range Ising models on Z^d, d>1. The argument works in the sharp region a>d, where a is the power of the coupling constant. The phase transition persists even if we add a polynomial decaying external field.
After that, we present a recent result from J. Ding and Z. Zhuang on the phase transition for the random field Ising model and discuss their implications to the model with long-range interaction.
