Statistical mechanics of spin models on trivalent graph ensembles

Particle Physics Theory seminar

Statistical mechanics of spin models on trivalent graph ensembles

  • Event time: 2:00pm
  • Event date: 22nd March 2017
  • Speaker: Mike Peardon (Trinity College Dublin)
  • Location: Higgs Centre Seminar Room,

Event details

Monte Carlo calculations of Ising spins coupled to random trivalent graphs are performed to look for ensemble average properties of this model. After outlining the system, the methods needed to perform these computations will be presented and the resulting phase structures described.
 

The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
