Abstract:

In this talk, I will present our recent work on the convergence rates of the magnetization and the corresponding fluctuations for a mean-field model in statistical mechanics. In particular, the proof of the existence of a critical speed to continuous phase transition points for the interaction and temperature parameters for which the magnetization falls within the fluctuations as their converge to zero.
