Mean-Field Theory of Spin Glasses and Neural Networks with Finite Coordination Number

  • I. Kanter
Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN, volume 38)


The mean-field theory of dilute spin glasses and neural networks is studied in the limit where the average coordination number is finite (i.e., the average number of neighbors connected to each site). The zero-temperature phase diagram is calculated. Comparison between the properties of dilute neural networks and fully connected nets is presented. The relationship between the different phases and the percolation transition is discussed.
