Phase transitions on complex networks

Abstract : The thesis is devoted to the investigation of the critical behavior of spin models on a scale-free network with a power-law node-degree probability distribution P(k) ∼ k^(-λ),, in presence of quenched or annealed disorder, and on a complete graph. For the Potts model on a scale-free network in terms of inhomogeneous mean-field approach we found the set of critical exponents, critical amplitude ratios and scaling functions, which appear to be dependent on the probability distribution decay exponent λ. In that sense λ is manifested to be one of the global parameters which define the universality class. Along with the traditional theory of complex networks by inhomogeneous mean-field method, we use for the first time the method of partition function zeros analysis in the complex plane. Unusual behavior was observed for a number of universal features, such as the angle of Fisher zeros condensation φ and the exponent σ which appear to be λ -dependent. We also observe that the Lee-Yang circle theorem is violated in the region 3 < λ < 5 for the Ising model on an annealed scale-free network.
