Domain walls in random field Ising chains

This paper studies the spin configurations of a nearest-neighbor Ising ferromagnetic chain with random external field, in the limit of very strong spin interaction. It shows the configurations converge to an explicit disorder-dependent configuration predicted by renormalization group methods. Key findings are the domain wall locations depend heavily on the disorder, the typical domain length grows as the square of the interaction strength, and quantitative estimates on the discrepancy density between actual and predicted configurations.
