Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the asymptotic behavior of symmetric spin glass dynamics in the Sherrington-Kirkpatrick model as proposed by Sompolinsky-Zippelius. We prove that the averaged law of the empirical measure on the path space of these dynamics satisfies a large deviation upper bound in the high temperature regime. We study the rate function which governs this large deviation upper bound and prove that it achieves its minimum value at a unique probability measure Q which is not Markovian. We deduce an averaged and a quenched law of large numbers. We then study the evolution of the Gibbs measure of a spin glass under Sompolinsky-Zippelius dynamics. We also prove a large deviation upper bound for the law of the empirical measure and describe the asymptotic behavior of a spin on path space under this dynamic in the high temperature regime.
