    Correlation functions for the three state superintegrable chiral Potts spin chain of finite lengths

    Full text link
    We compute the correlation functions of the three state superintegrable chiral Potts spin chain for chains of length 3,4,5. From these results we present conjectures for the form of the nearest neighbor correlation function.Comment: 10 pages; references update

    Critical behaviour of the two-dimensional Ising susceptibility

    Full text link
    We report computations of the short-distance and the long-distance (scaling) contributions to the square-lattice Ising susceptibility in zero field close to T_c. Both computations rely on the use of nonlinear partial difference equations for the correlation functions. By summing the correlation functions, we give an algorithm of complexity O(N^6) for the determination of the first N series coefficients. Consequently, we have generated and analysed series of length several hundred terms, generated in about 100 hours on an obsolete workstation. In terms of a temperature variable, \tau, linear in T/T_c-1, the short-distance terms are shown to have the form \tau^p(ln|\tau|)^q with p>=q^2. To O(\tau^14) the long-distance part divided by the leading \tau^{-7/4} singularity contains only integer powers of \tau. The presence of irrelevant variables in the scaling function is clearly evident, with contributions of distinct character at leading orders |\tau|^{9/4} and |\tau|^{17/4} being identified.Comment: 11 pages, REVTex

    Q-Dependent Susceptibilities in Ferromagnetic Quasiperiodic Z-Invariant Ising Models

    Full text link
    We study the q-dependent susceptibility chi(q) of a series of quasiperiodic Ising models on the square lattice. Several different kinds of aperiodic sequences of couplings are studied, including the Fibonacci and silver-mean sequences. Some identities and theorems are generalized and simpler derivations are presented. We find that the q-dependent susceptibilities are periodic, with the commensurate peaks of chi(q) located at the same positions as for the regular Ising models. Hence, incommensurate everywhere-dense peaks can only occur in cases with mixed ferromagnetic-antiferromagnetic interactions or if the underlying lattice is aperiodic. For mixed-interaction models the positions of the peaks depend strongly on the aperiodic sequence chosen.Comment: LaTeX2e, 26 pages, 9 figures (27 eps files). v2: Misprints correcte

    Overlapping Unit Cells in 3d Quasicrystal Structure

    Full text link
    A 3-dimensional quasiperiodic lattice, with overlapping unit cells and periodic in one direction, is constructed using grid and projection methods pioneered by de Bruijn. Each unit cell consists of 26 points, of which 22 are the vertices of a convex polytope P, and 4 are interior points also shared with other neighboring unit cells. Using Kronecker's theorem the frequencies of all possible types of overlapping are found.Comment: LaTeX2e, 11 pages, 5 figures (8 eps files), uses iopart.class. Final versio

    Quantum Loop Subalgebra and Eigenvectors of the Superintegrable Chiral Potts Transfer Matrices

    Full text link
    It has been shown in earlier works that for Q=0 and L a multiple of N, the ground state sector eigenspace of the superintegrable tau_2(t_q) model is highly degenerate and is generated by a quantum loop algebra L(sl_2). Furthermore, this loop algebra can be decomposed into r=(N-1)L/N simple sl_2 algebras. For Q not equal 0, we shall show here that the corresponding eigenspace of tau_2(t_q) is still highly degenerate, but splits into two spaces, each containing 2^{r-1} independent eigenvectors. The generators for the sl_2 subalgebras, and also for the quantum loop subalgebra, are given generalizing those in the Q=0 case. However, the Serre relations for the generators of the loop subalgebra are only proven for some states, tested on small systems and conjectured otherwise. Assuming their validity we construct the eigenvectors of the Q not equal 0 ground state sectors for the transfer matrix of the superintegrable chiral Potts model.Comment: LaTeX 2E document, using iopart.cls with iopams packages. 28 pages, uses eufb10 and eurm10 fonts.

    Bethe Ansatz solutions for Temperley-Lieb Quantum Spin Chains

    Full text link
    We solve the spectrum of quantum spin chains based on representations of the Temperley-Lieb algebra associated with the quantum groups Uq(Xn){\cal U}% _{q}(X_{n}) for Xn=A1,X_{n}=A_{1}, Bn,B_{n}, CnC_{n} and DnD_{n}. The tool is a modified version of the coordinate Bethe Ansatz through a suitable choice of the Bethe states which give to all models the same status relative to their diagonalization. All these models have equivalent spectra up to degeneracies and the spectra of the lower dimensional representations are contained in the higher-dimensional ones. Periodic boundary conditions, free boundary conditions and closed non-local boundary conditions are considered. Periodic boundary conditions, unlike free boundary conditions, break quantum group invariance. For closed non-local cases the models are quantum group invariant as well as periodic in a certain sense.Comment: 28 pages, plain LaTex, no figures, to appear in Int. J. Mod. Phys.

    Bond-Propagation Algorithm for Thermodynamic Functions in General 2D Ising Models

    Full text link
    Recently, we developed and implemented the bond propagation algorithm for calculating the partition function and correlation functions of random bond Ising models in two dimensions. The algorithm is the fastest available for calculating these quantities near the percolation threshold. In this paper, we show how to extend the bond propagation algorithm to directly calculate thermodynamic functions by applying the algorithm to derivatives of the partition function, and we derive explicit expressions for this transformation. We also discuss variations of the original bond propagation procedure within the larger context of Y-Delta-Y-reducibility and discuss the relation of this class of algorithm to other algorithms developed for Ising systems. We conclude with a discussion on the outlook for applying similar algorithms to other models.Comment: 12 pages, 10 figures; submitte
