Stability of the renormalization group in the 2D random Ising and Baxter models with respect to replica symmetry breaking
We study the critical properties of the weakly disordered two-dimensional Ising and Baxter models in terms of the renormalization group (RG) theory generalized to take into account replica symmetry breaking (RSB) effects. Recently it has been shown that the traditional replica-symmetric RG flows in the dimension 0305-4470/29/15/008/img1 are unstable with respect to the RSB potentials and a new spin-glass type critical phenomena has been discovered (Dotsenko Vik S, Harris B, Sherrington D and Stinchbombe R 1995 J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 28 3093; Dotsenko Vik S and Feldman D E 1995 J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 28 5183). In contrast, here it is demonstrated that in the considered two-dimensional systems the renormalization-group flows are stable with respect to the RSB modes. It is shown that the solution of the renormalization group equations with arbitrary starting RSB coupling matrix exhibits asymptotic approach to the traditional replica-symmetric ones. Thus, to leading order the non-perturbative RSB degrees of freedom do not affect the critical phenomena in the two-dimensional weakly disordered Ising and Baxter models studied earlier.
