Abstract

We introduce a new Ising spin-glass model and use it to study the relation between quenched disorder, frustration, ground state mulitplicity, and dimension. The Hamiltonian is of Edwards-Anderson type in any finite volume but the coupling magnitudes scale nonlinearly with volume. We find a mapping between the ground state structure of this model and the global connectivity structure of invasion percolation in the same dimension. We argue that our model has a singular pair of ground states below eight dimensions and infinitely many above.
