A new class of boundary conditions is described for quantum systems integrable by means of the quantum inverse scattering (R-matrix) method. The method proposed allows the author to treat open quantum chains with appropriate boundary terms in the Hamiltonian. The general considerations are applied to the XXZ and XYZ models, the nonlinear Schrodinger equation and Toda chain. 

Classical and quantum integrable systems with boundaries

We study two-dimensional classically integrable field theory with independent boundary conditions at each end, and obtain three possible generating functions for integrals of motion when this model

New solutions to the reflection equation and the projecting method

New integrable boundary conditions for integrable quantum systems can be constructed by tuning of scattering phases due to reflection at a boundary and an adjacent impurity and subsequent projection

Boundary transfer matrices and boundary quantum KZ equations

A simple relation between inhomogeneous transfer matrices and boundary quantum KZ equations is exhibited for quantum integrable systems with reflecting boundary conditions, analogous to an

Integrable open-boundary conditions for the q-deformed extended Hubbard model

Integrable open-boundary condition for the q-deformed Essler-Korepin-Schoutens extended Hubbard model of strongly correlated electrons, are studied in the framework of the boundary quantum inverse

The reconstruction of local quantum operators for the boundary XXZ spin-½ Heisenberg chain

The method of the reconstruction of local quantum operators in terms of the elements of the quantum monodromy matrix is applied to the XXZ spin-½ Heisenberg chain with integrable boundary conditions.

Quantum transfer matrices for discrete and continuous quasi-exactly solvable problems

We clarify the algebraic structure of continuous and discrete quasi-exactly solvable spectral problems by embedding them in the framework of the quantum inverse scattering method. The quasi-exactly

Coupling integrable field theories to mechanical systems at the boundary

We present an integrable Hamiltonian which describes the sinh-Gordon model on the half line coupled to a non-linear oscillator at the boundary. We explain how we apply Sklyanin's formalism to a


We study integrable boundary conditions for the supersymmetric t-J model of correlated electrons which arise when combining static scattering potentials with dynamical impurities carrying an internal



On perturbations of the periodic Toda lattice

A class of Hamiltonian systems including perturbations of the periodic Toda lattice and homogeneous cosmological models is studied. Separatrix approximation of oscillation regimes in these systems

Pauli principle for one-dimensional bosons and the algebraic bethe ansatz

For the construction of the physical vacuum in exactly solvable one-dimensional models of interacting bosons it is important that the momenta of all the particles be different. We give a formal proof

Hubbard chain with reflecting ends

The one-dimensional Hubbard model bounded by infinitely high potential walls is exactly diagonalised by Bethe-Yang ansatz techniques. The 'surface' energy is studied for the half-filled band and in

Surface exponents of the quantum XXZ, Ashkin-Teller and Potts models

Eigenspectra of the critical quantum Ashkin-Teller and Potts chains with free boundaries can be obtained from that of the XXZ chain with free boundaries and a complex surface field. By deriving and

Boundary Energy of a Bose Gas in One Dimension

By the superposition of Bethe's wave functions, using the Lieb's solution for the system of identical bosons interacting in one dimension via a $\ensuremath{\delta}$-function potential, we construct
