Topological order in matrix Ising models
Abstract
We study a family of models for an N_1 \times N_2 ${N}_{1}\times {N}_{2}$ matrix worth of Ising spins S_{aB} ${S}_{aB}$ . In the large N_i ${N}_{i}$ limit we show that the spins soften, so that the partition function is described by a bosonic matrix integral with a single ‘spherical’ constraint. In this way we generalize the results of to a wide class of Ising Hamiltonians with O(N_1,\mathbb{Z})\times O(N_2,\mathbb{Z}) $O({N}_{1},\mathbb{Z})\times O({N}_{2},\mathbb{Z})$ symmetry. The models can undergo topological large N $N$ phase transitions in which the thermal expectation value of the distribution of singular values of the matrix S_{aB} ${S}_{aB}$ becomes disconnected. This topological transition competes with low temperature glassy and magnetically ordered phases.
