Matteo Magoni, Satya N. Majumdar, Grégory Schehr. Ising model with stochastic resetting. Physical Review Research, American Physical Society, 2020, 2 (3), ⟨10.1103/PhysRevResearch.2.033182⟩. ⟨hal-03010228⟩

We study the stationary properties of the Ising model that, while evolving towards its equilibrium state at temperature $T$ according to the Glauber dynamics, is stochastically reset to its fixed initial configuration with magnetisation $m_0$ at a constant rate $r$. Resetting breaks detailed balance and drives the system to a non-equilibrium stationary state where the magnetisation acquires a nontrivial distribution, leading to a rich phase diagram in the $(T,r)$ plane. We establish these results exactly in one-dimension and present scaling arguments supported by numerical simulations in two-dimensions. We show that resetting gives rise to a novel "pseudo-ferro" phase in the $(T,r)$ plane for $r > r^*(T)$ and $T>T_c$ where $r^*(T)$ is a crossover line separating the pseudo-ferro phase from a paramagnetic phase. This pseudo-ferro phase is characterised by a non-zero typical magnetisation and a vanishing gap near $m=0$ of the magnetisation distribution.
