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

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

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

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

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

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

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,

### Bethe Ansatz solutions for Temperley-Lieb Quantum Spin Chains

We solve the spectrum of quantum spin chains based on representations of the
Temperley-Lieb algebra associated with the quantum groups ${\cal U}%
_{q}(X_{n})$ for $X_{n}=A_{1},$ $B_{n},$ $C_{n}$ and $D_{n}$. 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

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
