Title: Recent progress on random field Ising model

Abstract: Random field Ising model is a canonical example to study the effect of disorder on long range order. In 70's, Imry-Ma predicted that in the presence of weak disorder, the long-range order persists at low temperatures in three dimensions and above but disappears in two dimensions. In this talk, I will review mathematical development surrounding this prediction, and I will focus on recent progress on exponential decay and on correlation length in two dimensions. The talk is based on a joint work with Jiaming Xia and a joint work with Mateo Wirth.
