The logarithmic sobolev inequality for discrete spin systems on a lattice
- 153 Downloads
For finite range lattice gases with a finite spin space, it is shown that the Dobrushin-Shlosman mixing condition is equivalent to the existence of a logarithmic Sobolev inequality for the associated (unique) Gibbs state. In addition, implications of these considerations for the ergodic properties of the corresponding Glauber dynamics are examined.
