We construct the family of spin chain hamiltonians, which have affine quantum group symmetry U q ˆ g. Their eigenvalues coincide with the eigen-values of the usual spin chain hamiltonians, but have the degeneracy of levels, corresponding to affine U q ˆ g. The space of states of these spin chains is formed by the tensor product of fully reducible(More)
We show that the action of universal R-matrix of affine U q sl 2 quantum algebra, when q is a root of unity, can be renormalized by some scalar factor to give a well defined nonsingular expression, satisfying Yang-Baxter equation. It reduced to intertwining operators of all representations , corresponding to Chiral Potts, if the parameters of these(More)
