MathPhys odyssey 2001 : integrable models and beyond : in honor of Barry M. McCoy by Anne Boutet de Monvel-Berthier( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is dedicated to Barry M. McCoy on the occasionofhis sixtieth birthday. Barry McCoy has led the research on integrable models in statistical mechanics and quantumfieldtheoryfor morethan 30years. Hisbook, cowrittenwithT. T. Wu, The Two dimensional/sing Model, (HarvardUniversity)containsallthebasic resultsontheIsing model obtained by the early 1970s. However, McCoy'sjointpaper with Wu, Tracy and Barouch, Spin-spin correlation functions for the two-dimensional/sing model: Exact results in the scaling region (Physical Review B13, 316-374, 1976), was a giant step beyond the book. A remarkable connection between the two-point scaling correlation functions and the Painleve transcendents was found. This work made an enormous impact on mathematical physics in the last quarter of the 20th century. It gave the first nontrivial exampleofinteracting field theory in which the Green function can be written explicitly in terms of special functions satisfying nonlinear differential equations. Later in the 1980s, an extensive list of massless field theories was added in the innovation of conformal field theory, in which the Green functions are characterized by linear differential equationsofthe hypergeometric type. However, evenalmost30yearsaftertheirwork, theIsingmodel isessentiallytheunique casewhereall theGreenfunctionsofmassivefield theoryarecharacterizedbynonlinear differential equations

Spectrum and completeness of the integrable 3-state Potts model : a finite size study by G Albertini( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "All eigenvalues of the transfer matrix of the integrable 3-state Potts model are computed as polynomials in the spectral variable for chains of length M [<or =] 7. The zeroes of the eigenvalues are known to satisfy a Bethe's Ansatz equation and thus it is of particular interest that we find many solutions whose zeroes do not satisfy the traditional 'string hypothesis'. We also find many cases where the integers in the logarithmic form of the Bethe equations do not satisfy the monotonicity properties that they are usually assumed to possess. We present a classification of all eigenvalues in terms of sets of roots and show that, for all M, this classification yields a complete set."
Advanced statistical mechanics by Barry M McCoy( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Statistical Mechanics is the study of systems where the number of interacting particles becomes infinite. In the last fifty years tremendous advances have been made which have required the invention of entirely new fields of mathematics such as quantum groups and affine Lie algebras. They have engendered remarkable discoveries concerning non-linear differential equations and algebraic geometry, and have produced profound insights in both condensed matter physics and quantum field theory. Unfortunately, none of these advances are taught in graduate courses in statistical mechanics. This book is an attempt to correct this problem. It begins with theorems on the existence (and lack) of order for crystals and magnets and with the theory of critical phenomena, and continues by presenting the methods and results of fifty years of analytic and computer computations of phase transitions. It concludes with an extensive presentation of four of the most important of exactly solved problems: the Ising, 8 vertex, hard hexagon and chiral Potts models
