Batchelor, Murray T; Guan, Xi-Wen; Oelkers, Norman; Sakai, Kazumitsu; Tsuboi, Z; Foerster, Angela


We investigate the thermal and magnetic properties of the integrable su(4) ladder model by means of the quantum transfer matrix method. The magnetic susceptibility, specific heat, magnetic entropy, and high field magnetization are evaluated from the free energy derived via the recently proposed method of high temperature expansion for exactly solved models. We show that the integrable model can be used to describe the physics of the strong coupling ladder compounds. Excellent agreement is seen...[Show more]
