Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In a recent paper (Chen et al. in The generalized TAP free energy, to appear in Comm. Pure Appl. Math.), we developed the generalized TAP approach for mixed p-spin models with Ising spins at positive temperature. Here we extend these results in two directions. We find a simplified representation for the energy of the generalized TAP states in terms of the Parisi measure of the model and, in particular, show that the energy of all states at a given distance from the origin is the same. Furthermore, we prove the analogues of the positive temperature results at zero temperature, which concern the ground-state energy and the organization of ground-state configurations in space.
