Zero temperature magnetization of a one-dimensional spin glass

  • E. Gardner

We calculate the zero temperature magnetizationm of a one-dimensional Ising spin glass is a weak magnetic fieldh. We show thatm∼Ch x and give closed expressions for the constantC and the exponentx which both depend on the probability distribution of nearest-neighbor interactions.
