Classical spin models and the quantum-stabilizer formalism.

Abstract

We relate a large class of classical spin models, including the inhomogeneous Ising, Potts, and clock models of q-state spins on arbitrary graphs, to problems in quantum physics. More precisely, we show how to express partition functions as inner products between certain quantum-stabilizer states and product states. This connection allows us to use powerful… (More)
