Since to me it were no wrong
If it chanced not on my day.

How absorbed he seems.

Will linger to admire.

Unto Thy glowing all my pleasant dew,

In science:

An Efficient Modified "Walk On Spheres" Algorithm for the Linearized Poisson-Boltzmann Equation
The ground state structure is explained in terms of absorbing and non-absorbing random walk excursions.
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
This follows also from the non-absorbing random walks, and implies that the magnetization length scale is a product of these two scales.
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
The system can thus be split up into such absorbing excursions and into the remaining lattice sites, which make up so-called non-absorbing excursions.
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
The length of a non-absorbing excursion is lnae . A simple ’step down’ (like from Σ1 to Σ2 ) is included in this definition.
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
The GS now follows as a sequence of absorbing and non-absorbing excursions.
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
It, and the Zeeman energy and mean domain-length can be determined with the three rules: (1) determine an absorbing excursion S0 for a given field configuration.
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
If it starts at site i0, ends at j0, and σ is the sign of its field-sum, then σk = σ for all k ∈ S0 . (2) start from j0 + 1 and find all nnae of non-absorbing excursions until the next absorbing excursion S1 (from i1 to j1 ) is found, whose field-sum is by definition opposite in sign to the preceding one.
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
The sites k belonging to the non-absorbing excursions have the same orientation σk = σ as those within S0 .
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
The fieldsum over the local fields of a nonabsorbing excursion is a RW with absorbing boundaries at Pnae hi = 0 and Pnae hi = 2J and random step size with zero mean and variance hr .
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
Rescaling the step size h′ i = hi /hr → 1 this becomes a 1d RW starting from x = 1 at t = 0 with random step lengths with mean zero and variance one (for a binary distribution hi = ±hr it yields a conventional lattice random walk with h′ i = ±1) and absorbing boundaries at x = 0 and x = L = 2J/hr .
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
The mean number [nnae ]av of consecutive non-absorbing excursions follows due to the fact that the probability for an excursion to be absorbing grows as pae ∼ 1/L ∝ hr .
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
As a consequence nnae ∼ 1/ln(1 − b hr ) and the mean length of an absorbing excursion grows like h−2 r .
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
The field energy of a domain can be computed as a function of hr and ld by noting that both a single absorbing excursion and all of the non-absorbing excursions contribute.
Ground states versus low-temperature equilibria in random field Ising chains
Each non-absorbing excursion adds an amount of O(hr ) so that the sum self-averages.
