Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the asymptotic behaviour of asymmetrical spin glass dynamics in a Sherrington-Kirkpatrick model as proposed by Sompolinsky-Zippelius. We prove that the annealed law of the empirical measure on path space of these dynamics satisfy a large deviation principle in the high temperature regime. We study the rate function of this large deviation principle and prove that it achieves its minimum value at a unique probability measure Q which is not markovian. We deduce that the quenched law of the empirical measure converges to δQ. Extending then the preceeding results to replicated dynamics, we investigate the quenched behavior of a single spin. We get quenched convergence to Q in the case of a symmetric initial law and even potential for the free spin.
