Quenched thermodynamic states of an amorphous ferromagnet are studied. The magnet is a countable collection of point particles chaotically distributed over Rd , d≥2 . Each particle bears a real-valued spin with symmetric a priori distribution; the spin-spin interaction is pair-wise and attractive. Two spins are supposed to interact if they are neighbors in the graph defined by a homogeneous Poisson point process. For this model, we prove that with probability one: (a) quenched thermodynamic states exist; (b) they are multiple if the intensity of the underlying point process and the inverse temperature are big enough; (c) there exist multiple quenched thermodynamic states which depend on the realizations of the underlying point process in a measurable way.
