Abstract

Using a very efficient numerical algorithm of the strong disorder renormalization group method, we have extended the investigations about the critical behavior of the random transverse-field Ising model in three and four dimensions, as well as for Erdos-Rényi random graphs, which represent infinite dimensional lattices. In all studied cases, an infinite disorder quantum critical point is identified, which ensures that the applied method is asymptotically correct and the calculated critical exponents tend to the exact values for large scales. We have found that the critical exponents are independent of the form of (ferromagnetic) disorder and they vary smoothly with the dimensionality.
