This paper provides a new proof for the uniqueness result of Gibbs states for random interaction potentials on a regulr lattice of arbitrary dimension in the high temperature regime [see e.g. J. Fröhlich and J. Imbrie, Commun. Math. Phys. 96, 145-180 (1984; Zbl 0574.60098)]. Instead of the cluster expansion method, the authors proceed by associating to each realization of the random interaction potential a new random graph. They show then via an induction procedure where certain vertices of the graph are “unglued”, that these graphs bear almost surely a unique Gibbs field, if the interaction force is small.
