Cugliandolo-Kurchan equations for dynamics of Spin-Glasses



We study the Langevin dynamics for the family of spherical p-spin disordered mean-field models of statistical physics. We prove that in the limit of system size N approaching infinity, the empirical state correlation and integrated response functions for these N-dimensional coupled diffusions converge almost surely and uniformly in time, to the non-random unique strong solution of a pair of explicit non-linear integro-differential equations intensively studied by Cugliandolo and Kurchan.
