Multicritical points of the Potts spin glasses on the triangular lattice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Conjecture on the exact multicritical points for several types of the Potts spin glass model on the triangular lattice is given, using a technique based on the duality in conjunction with the replica method. The considered Potts spin glass models are of two types; only with three-body interactions and with two- and three-body interactions on the triangular lattice. In the former case, the multicritical points are predicted for the general q-state Potts spin glass model, while in the latter case the results are presented for two types of the 2-state Potts spin glass.
