Zeros of the moment of the partition function [Zn]J with respect to complex n are investigated in the zero-temperature limit β→∞, n→0 keeping y=βn≈O(1). We numerically investigate the zeros of the ±J Ising spin-glass models on several Cayley trees and hierarchical lattices and compare those results. In both lattices, the calculations are carried out with feasible computational costs by using recursion relations originated from the structures of those lattices. The results for Cayley trees show that a sequence of the zeros approaches the real axis of y implying that a certain type of analyticity breaking actually occurs, although it is irrelevant for any known replica symmetry breaking. The result of hierarchical lattices also shows the presence of analyticity breaking, even in the two dimensional case in which there is no finite-temperature spin-glass transition, which implies the existence of the zero-temperature phase transition in the system. A notable tendency of hierarchical lattices is that the zeros spread in a wide region of the complex y plane in comparison with the case of Cayley trees, which may reflect the difference between the mean-field and finite-dimensional systems.
