### 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

### 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,

### Some Recent Results on Pair Correlation Functions and Susceptibilities in Exactly Solvable Models

Using detailed exact results on pair-correlation functions of Z-invariant
Ising models, we can write and run algorithms of polynomial complexity to
obtain wavevector-dependent susceptibilities for a variety of Ising systems.
Reviewing recent work we compare various periodic and quasiperiodic models,
where the couplings and/or the lattice may be aperiodic, and where the Ising
couplings may be either ferromagnetic, or antiferromagnetic, or of mixed sign.
We present some of our results on the square-lattice fully-frustrated Ising
model. Finally, we make a few remarks on our recent works on the pentagrid
Ising model and on overlapping unit cells in three dimensions and how these
works can be utilized once more detailed results for pair correlations in,
e.g., the eight-vertex model or the chiral Potts model or even
three-dimensional Yang-Baxter integrable models become available.Comment: LaTeX2e using iopart.cls, 10 pages, 5 figures (5 eps files), Dunk

### 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

### New Results for the Correlation Functions of the Ising Model and the Transverse Ising Chain

In this paper we show how an infinite system of coupled Toda-type nonlinear
differential equations derived by one of us can be used efficiently to
calculate the time-dependent pair-correlations in the Ising chain in a
transverse field. The results are seen to match extremely well long large-time
asymptotic expansions newly derived here. For our initial conditions we use new
long asymptotic expansions for the equal-time pair correlation functions of the
transverse Ising chain, extending an old result of T.T. Wu for the 2d Ising
model. Using this one can also study the equal-time wavevector-dependent
correlation function of the quantum chain, a.k.a. the q-dependent diagonal
susceptibility in the 2d Ising model, in great detail with very little
computational effort.Comment: LaTeX 2e, 31 pages, 8 figures (16 eps files). vs2: Two references

### Eigenvectors in the Superintegrable Model I: sl_2 Generators

In order to calculate correlation functions of the chiral Potts model, one
only needs to study the eigenvectors of the superintegrable model. Here we
start this study by looking for eigenvectors of the transfer matrix of the
periodic tau_2(t)model which commutes with the chiral Potts transfer matrix. We
show that the degeneracy of the eigenspace of tau_2(t) in the Q=0 sector is
2^r, with r=(N-1)L/N when the size of the transfer matrix L is a multiple of N.
We introduce chiral Potts model operators, different from the more commonly
used generators of quantum group U-tilde_q(sl-hat(2)). From these we can form
the generators of a loop algebra L(sl(2)). For this algebra, we then use the
roots of the Drinfeld polynomial to give new explicit expressions for the
generators representing the loop algebra as the direct sum of r copies of the
simple algebra sl(2).Comment: LaTeX 2E document, 11 pages, 1 eps figure, using iopart.cls with

### Eigenvectors in the Superintegrable Model II: Ground State Sector

In 1993, Baxter gave $2^{m_Q}$ eigenvalues of the transfer matrix of the
$N$-state superintegrable chiral Potts model with spin-translation quantum
number $Q$, where $m_Q=\lfloor(NL-L-Q)/N\rfloor$. In our previous paper we
studied the Q=0 ground state sector, when the size $L$ of the transfer matrix
is chosen to be a multiple of $N$. It was shown that the corresponding $\tau_2$
matrix has a degenerate eigenspace generated by the generators of $r=m_0$
simple $sl_2$ algebras. These results enable us to express the transfer matrix
in the subspace in terms of these generators $E_m^{\pm}$ and $H_m$ for
$m=1,...,r$. Moreover, the corresponding $2^r$ eigenvectors of the transfer
matrix are expressed in terms of rotated eigenvectors of $H_m$.Comment: LaTeX 2E document, using iopart.cls with iopams packages. 17 pages,

### The Onsager Algebra Symmetry of $\tau^{(j)}$-matrices in the Superintegrable Chiral Potts Model

We demonstrate that the $\tau^{(j)}$-matrices in the superintegrable chiral
Potts model possess the Onsager algebra symmetry for their degenerate
eigenvalues. The Fabricius-McCoy comparison of functional relations of the
eight-vertex model for roots of unity and the superintegrable chiral Potts
model has been carefully analyzed by identifying equivalent terms in the
corresponding equations, by which we extract the conjectured relation of
$Q$-operators and all fusion matrices in the eight-vertex model corresponding
to the $T\hat{T}$-relation in the chiral Potts model.Comment: Latex 21 pages; Typos added, References update
