The Renormalization-Group Microscope: The Local Statistical Mechanics of Heterogeneous Systems

Authors: Dicle YEŞİLLETEN, A. Nihat BERKER

Abstract: Renormalization-group theory is developed to yield all local microscopic thermodynamic densities in heterogeneous systems. Local energy densities and local magnetizations are thus obtained for random-bond systems, random-field systems, and spin-glasses, in two and three dimensions. Different order-disorder mechanisms in these diverse systems, such as chaotic ordering and domain-wall melting, become quantitatively evident.
