A simple proof of the stability criterion of Gray and Griffeath
- 66 Downloads
Gray and Griffeath studied attractive nearest neighbor spin systems on the integers having “all 0's” and “all 1's” as traps. Using the contour method, they established a necessary and sufficient condition for the stability of the “all 1's” equilibrium under small perturbations. In this paper we use a renormalized site construction to give a much simpler proof. Our new approach can be used in many situations as a substitute for the contour method.
