Variational description of Gibbs-non-Gibbs dynamical transitions for the
Curie-Weiss model

Roberto Fernández, Frank den Hollander, Julián Martínez
We perform a detailed study of Gibbs-non-Gibbs transitions for the
Curie-Weiss model subject to independent spin-flip dynamics
("infinite-temperature" dynamics). We show that, in this setup, the program
outlined in van Enter, Fern\'andez, den Hollander and Redig can be fully
completed, namely that Gibbs-non-Gibbs transitions are equivalent to
bifurcations in the set of global minima of the large-deviation rate function
for the trajectories of the magnetization conditioned on their endpoint. As a
consequence, we show that the time-evolved model is non-Gibbs if and only if
this set is not a singleton for some value of the final magnetization. A
detailed description of the possible scenarios of bifurcation is given, leading
to a full characterization of passages from Gibbs to non-Gibbs -and vice versa-
with sharp transition times (under the dynamics Gibbsianness can be lost and
can be recovered).
Our analysis expands the work of Ermolaev and Kulske who considered zero
magnetic field and finite-temperature spin-flip dynamics. We consider both zero
and non-zero magnetic field but restricted to infinite-temperature spin-flip
dynamics. Our results reveal an interesting dependence on the interaction
parameters, including the presence of forbidden regions for the optimal
trajectories and the possible occurrence of overshoots and undershoots in the
optimal trajectories. The numerical plots provided are obtained with the help
