The inverse relation method for obtaining the free energy of the chiral Potts model

Baxter, Rodney


We derive the free energy of the chiral Potts model by the infinite lattice "inversion relation" method. This method is non-rigorous in that it always needs appropriate analyticity assumptions. Guided by previous calculations based on exact finite-lattice functional relations, we find that in addition to the usual assumption that the free energy be analytic and bounded in some principal domain of the rapidity parameter space that includes the physical regime, we also need a much less obvious...[Show more]
