Nature of Ground State Incongruence in Two-Dimensional Spin Glasses

Abstract

We rigorously rule out the appearance of multiple domain walls between ground states in 2D Edwards- Anderson Ising spin glasses (with periodic boundary conditions and, e.g., Gaussian couplings). This supports the conjecture that there is only a single pair of ground states in these models.
