    Abstract

    We consider the zero-temperature dynamics for the infinite-range, non translation invariant one-dimensional spin model introduced by Marinari, Parisi and Ritort to generate glassy behaviour out of a deterministic interaction. It is argued that there can be a large number of metastable (i.e., one-flip stable) states with very small overlap with the ground state but very close in energy to it, and that their total number increases exponentially with the size of the system.
