Some recent developments in spin glasses
Spin glass; Monte Carlo; phase transition
I give some experimental and theoretical background to spin glasses, and then discuss the nature of the phase transition in spin glasses withvector spins. Results of Monte Carlo simulations of the Heisenberg spin glass model in three dimensions are presented. A finite-size scaling analysis of the correlation length of the spins and chiralities shows that there is a single, finite-temperature transition at which both spins and chiralities order.
