View publication

Abstract

The debate over the lower critical dimension of the Ising model in a random magnetic field is briefly reviewed. Simple energy accounting estimates of the surface tension of the model at zero temperature are summarized. These arguments predict that the lower critical dimension is two. Existing theoretical, numerical, and experimental support for this conclusion is assessed.
