On properties of Parisi measures    [PDF]

Antonio Auffinger, Wei-Kuo Chen
We investigate the structure of Parisi measures, the functional order parameters of mixed p-spin models in mean field spin glasses. In the absence of external field, we prove that a Parisi measure satisfies the following properties. First, at all temperatures, the support of any Parisi measure contains the origin. If it contains an open interval, then the measure has a smooth density on this interval. Next, we give a criterion on temperature parameters for which a Parisi measure is neither Replica Symmetric nor One Replica Symmetry Breaking. Finally, we show that in the Sherrington-Kirkpatrick model, slightly above the critical temperature, the largest number in the support of a Parisi measure is a jump discontinuity. An analogue of these results is discussed in the spherical mixed p-spin models. As a tool to establish these facts and of independent interest, we study functionals of the associated Parisi PDEs and derive regularity properties of their solutions.
