Languages of publication
Results of Monte Carlo simulations of p-spin models on scale-free hypernetworks are presented. The hypernetworks are obtained using the preferential attachment algorithm, the spins are located in the nodes and the hyperedges connecting p nodes correspond to non-zero ferromagnetic interactions involving p spins. Such models show high degeneracy of the ground state: apart from the ferromagnetic state, depending on the parameters of the preferential attachment algorithm leading to different topologies of the obtained hypernetworks, there are several or even infinitely many disordered (glassy) states with the same energy. For various network topologies quantities such as the specific heat or magnetic susceptibility show maxima as functions of the temperature, which suggests the occurrence of the glassy or ferromagnetic phase transition. The models under study may serve as a starting point for modelling various forms of cooperation in social and economic sciences involving many-body rather than two-body interactions.
