Anirban Basak : Ferromagnetic Ising Measures on Large Locally Tree-Like Graphs



We consider the ferromagnetic Ising model on a sequence of graphs $G_n$ converging locally weakly to a rooted random tree. Generalizing [Montanari, Mossel, and Sly (2012)], under an appropriate “continuity" property, we show that the Ising measures on these graphs converge locally weakly to a measure, which is obtained by first picking a random tree, and then the symmetric mixture of Ising measures with + and - boundary conditions on that tree. Under the extra assumptions that $G_n$ are edge-expanders, we show that the local weak limit of the Ising measures conditioned on positive magnetization, is the Ising measure with + boundary condition on the limiting tree. The “continuity" property holds except possibly for countably many choices of $\beta$, which for limiting trees of minimum degree at least three, are all within certain explicitly specified compact interval. We further show the edge-expander property for (most of) the configuration model graphs corresponding to limiting (multi-type) Galton Watson trees. This talk is based on a joint work with Amir Dembo.
