The twodimensional Ising model by
Barry M McCoy(
Book
)
27 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and German and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Of all the systems in statistical mechanics on which exact calculations have been performed," declare the authors of this text, "the twodimensional Ising model is not only the most thoroughly investigated; it is also the richest and most profound." Originally published in 1973, this is the definitive survey of the Ising model, a mathematical model of ferromagnetism in statistical mechanics. This updated edition of the classic text features an extensive section on new developments. Geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students of physics, it is also suitable for physicists working in statistical mechanics and related fields. Following a brief introductory chapter, the book explores statistical mechanics, the onedimensional Ising model, dimer statistics, specific heat of Onsager's lattice in the absence of a magnetic field, boundary specific heat and magnetization, and boundary spinspin correlation functions. Subsequent chapters cover the correlation functions, WienerHopf sum equations, spontaneous magnetization, behavior of the correlation functions, asymptotic expansion, and boundary hysteresis and spin probability functions. Two other chapters examine Ising models with random impurities in terms of specific heat and boundary effects. The book concludes with a new chapter examining developments in the field since 1973

MathPhys odyssey 2001 : integrable models and beyond : in honor of Barry M. McCoy by
Anne Boutet de MonvelBerthier(
Book
)
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 202 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, Spinspin correlation functions for the twodimensional/sing model: Exact results in the scaling region (Physical Review B13, 316374, 1976), was a giant step beyond the book. A remarkable connection between the twopoint 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 3state Potts model : a finite size study by
Giuseppe Albertini(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Abstract: "All eigenvalues of the transfer matrix of the integrable 3state 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."

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 nonlinear 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
