Some comments on developments in exact solutions in statistical mechanics since 1944

Baxter, Rodney

Description

Onsager and Kaufman calculated the partition function of the Ising model exactly in 1944 and 1949. Since then there have been many developments in the exact solution of similar, but usually more complicated, models. Here I shall mention a few, and show how some of the latest work seems to be returning once again to the properties observed by Onsager and Kaufman.
