I have two questions related to the paper "Theory of Spin Glasses" by Edwards and Anderson. It can be found at http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/0305-4608/5/5/017/pdf for those who may want to read the paper.
However, in (2.23) $q \rightarrow 0$ as $T \rightarrow 0$. On top of this $q = 1$ is not even a solution, and the case that $q = -1$ is not entirely ruled out. I was unable to reproduce their equation given their variables -- I think there may be a typo in their definition of $\rho$ -- but even with the fixed-up expression, I get roughly the same dependence on $T$ as they do.
Please let me know of any resources which may explain the shortcomings in this paper. It seems that there may be several mistakes in the manuscript, but for some reason or another I cannot find any mention of this. Thanks for any help.
