On the existence of a finite-temperature transition in the two-dimensional gauge glass Academic Article uri icon


  • Results from Monte Carlo simulations of the two-dimensional gauge glass supporting a zero-temperature transition are presented. A finite-size scaling analysis of the correlation length shows that the system does not exhibit spin-glass order at finite temperatures. These results are compared to earlier claims of a finite-temperature transition. © 2003 The American Physical Society.
