Corner transfer matrices of the Ising model in statistical mechanics

Tsang, Shiu Kuen


The work of this thesis is mainly on an investigation of the "corner transfer matrices" (CTM) of the Ising model in statistical mechanics. The thesis starts with a review on the Ising model and is followed by a brief discussion of various methods for investigating the Ising model. In particular, new techniques and approaches developed by Baxter form the basis for further research described in this thesis. Thus in Section I, the review is introduced first. In Section II, the new...[Show more]
