Relations between the ‘percolation’ and ‘colouring’ problem and other graph-theoretical problems associated with regular planar lattices: some exact results for the ‘percolation’ problem
A transfer-matrix approach is introduced to calculate the 'Whitney polynomial’ of a planar lattice, which is a generalization of the ‘percolation’ and ‘colouring’ problems. This new approach turnsExpand

Dimer problem in statistical mechanics-an exact result
Abstract An important, even though physically oversimplified model of a system (e.g. solution or gas) containing diatomic molecules is that of a lattice occupied by ‘rigid dimers’ (e.g. Fowler andExpand

Asymptotic formulae in the theory of partitions
It is the object of this paper to obtain an asymptotic formula for the number of partitions p m ( n ) of a large positive integer n into m parts λ r , where the number m becomes large with n and theExpand

The existing theory of ‘Bose-Einstein condensation’ is compared with some results obtained from the theory of partition of numbers. Two models are examined, one in which the energy levels are allExpand

Statistical mechanics and the partition of numbers II. The form of crystal surfaces
The classical theory of partition of numbers is applied to the problem of determining the equilibrium profile of a simple cubic crystal. It is concluded that it may be thermo-dynamically profitableExpand

Triangular Potts model at its transition temperature, and related models
Kelland has solved a restricted ice-type model on the triangular lattice. Here it is shown that this is equivalent to a restricted six-vertex model on the Kagomé lattice, and to the g-stateExpand

The Causes of the War of Jenkins' Ear, 1739
Both Burke and Coxe have said that Jenkins never lost his ear from the stroke of a Spanish ‘cutlash’; a modern historian has shown it to be likely that he did. What, however, is more important thanExpand
